Bert Seatter is asking for your support to become a member of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta on May 29, 2023 representing Lesser Slave Lake as an Independent Candidate under the Solidarity Movement of Alberta.

Bert has lived most of his life in Alberta. He grew up on his grandfathers homestead in northern Alberta. When he finished school he took great pride in farming the land his grandfather and father farmed. As his father was a bus driver and a truck driver as well, he also took interest in doing those jobs. These interests took him into the Northwest Territories working in the gas fields, then to Red Earth where he hauled oil, then logging in Slave Lake, hauling wood chips, frac sand and grain. Driving truck took him across the three western provinces.

Bert also served on the local volunteer fire department for 29 years and had the privilege of being fire chief for one term.  The department was called out to tackle all kinds of fires including wildfires.  

Bert has always been interested in politics. He volunteered on the local community council serving on the board as well as a board member for seniors housing. He also served as a councillor for 9 years with Westlock County. Being a councillor was a big learning curve, but was most enjoyable and he was proud to see the many accomplishments.  During the time he served as councillor he attended many meetings, sat on many different boards and had the privilege to travel across Canada representing our county.

Travelling was something else he really enjoyed. Europe was the most memorable as he was privileged to travel through many countries. This was during the time when you needed special permission to travel into some of those countries. You had to tell them where you were going, how long you would stay, who you were going to see, how much money you had as well as having your passport and visas in order. 

To this day Bert still enjoy travelling, but prefers road trips. He still lives on the family homestead, but it looks a little different today.  He still loves farming and plants a little grain, watching how well it can grow.  Bert enjoys the quiet times with his wife and family.

Reason for running

submitted by the candidate or their team
End government corruption and bring the province back to the people.

Albertans are being neglected. We need to go back to Regional Health Boards, Regional Policing as well as a reformed justice system. Stop indoctrinating our children.  No more Federal Policing, no carbon tax, no digital banking or ID, no 15 minute cities, no gun grabs, no mandated jabs, no sales tax, no United Nations, no World Economic Forum and no World Health Organization taking away the freedoms of Albertans. Elections would all be done with papers ballots and manual counting.
