Sarah Hoffman Launches Alberta NDP Leadership Bid with Focus on Health, Climate, and Housing

Sarah Hoffman, MLA for Edmonton-Glenora and former deputy premier and minister of health, has officially launched her campaign for the leadership of the Alberta NDP. She aims to address health care challenges, combat climate change, and tackle the housing crisis with NDP values. Hoffman expressed opposition to a consumer carbon tax in Alberta, believing there is insufficient support for it. She emphasized the importance of discussing climate change and proposed policies focusing on polluter-pay principles.

Hoffman's campaign focuses on key issues such as health, climate, and housing, with an emphasis on polluter-pay values. She highlighted the need for the NDP to present bold ideas to differentiate themselves and the importance of winning tight races. Hoffman's leadership bid follows announcements from fellow MLAs Rakhi Pancholi and Kathleen Ganley.
