David Parker is one happy man.

Former premier Jason Kenney is gone. Premier Danielle Smith is firmly holding the reins of power.
And, last weekend at the UCP’s packed-house shindig with a record-breaking crowd, those souls once sidelined, discounted and name-called by the old conservative establishment were in the majority by a country mile.

And they were calling the shots.

“The old PC guard is going to die. It’s not going to be negotiated over. It’s not going to be brought back into the fold and allowed to have its little corner,” says Parker, the founder of Take Back Alberta, the self-styled fighters against elitism.

“If your idea of politics is to be a gatekeeper you might as well leave because we’re going to rip down your gates.”
