Mike supports the reform the education system and implement freedom of choice in education by ensuring that both equitable funding and the approved Alberta curriculum follows the students for all education options, including public, private, Catholic, and charter schools in Alberta, as well as homeschooling.
Our new educational policies will hold school boards accountable and ensure that students are being taught basic life skills such as navigation, accounting exercises such as filing taxes, as well as encourage critical thinking, debate skills and civil discussion are all part of the curriculum.
Instead of teaching inaccurate biology (such as indoctrinating students to believe there are more than 2 genders - which there aren’t), I will ensure that the curriculum includes exposure to, farming, fishing, hunting, outdoor skills, basic home repairs, vehicle maintenance, firearms knowledge, i.e. how the real world operates.
SMALLER GOVERNMENT, LOWER TAXES
Mike will support the use of the Notwithstanding Clause, and the Alberta Sovereignty Act to push back against Federal Government overreach.
We will enshrine parental rights, property rights, freedom to prosper, freedom from taxation without representation, business freedom without govt interference, freedom to speak our thoughts .
Mike also will promote all policies of the Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta, at https://www.wildrosenation.com/electionmessaging and https://www.wildrosenation.com/policies including the decentralization of the power base from Edmonton to local levels, the collection of taxes in Alberta not Ottawa, eliminating joint and overlapping funding/staffing between levels of government and within departments/agencies.

Mike will champion our freedoms to be respected
Mike is 27 years old, and sees potential in Alberta that others may not. He wants that potential for his family, and those that support him in his bid to represent Highwood residents. Mike works in Okotoks, and loves the people there.
He has a college diploma from Canadore College in Media Communications (Broadcasting - TV/Video Production). Mike understands how the mainstream media operates and uses their bias to push and enforce agendas put forth by Canada’s federal government.
Mike learned in early 2020 that Alberta was the only saving grace for individual freedom, prosperity, and respect for all walks of life. Alberta is where the opportunity for growth, success and a proper identity begins. It is where facts hold merit over emotional polarization.
Unlike those currently seated in Alberta legislature, He is not a career politician; he is a working-class Albertan who wants the voices of all to be heard. We have a community of people that have been forced into silence by Ottawa in the past 8 years, and it’s time for those people to be heard and respected by their provincial leadership.
Reason for running
Mike felt compelled to act, and seek the province where freedom and rights had a chance to survive the constant attacks.
In an urbanized dystopian environment, speaking up put him at risk of both verbal and physical attack from those who oppose his way of thinking.
