They mean Albertans get a direct say on important issues.
But what does NDP think of new legislation to strengthen democracy through referendums?
They called it anti-democratic! A power grab! Even corrupt!
Their complaints are all quite rich given that the Alberta Federation of Labour, an organization that is legally linked to the NDP, spent $1.8 million in the last three years on political advertising backing NDP-aligned causes.
The NDP are angry.
They’re angry because they fear putting more power directly into the hands of Albertans. Remember, they’re the party that called Albertans sewer rats and embarrassing cousins.

"We're going to shut the door on the NDP big money election scam… we're going to give Albertans the final say on big issues through referendums because unlike the NDP, we believe in direct democracy and the judgement of common people in this province."#ableg pic.twitter.com/CPWz1bTO3O
