SPEAKERS:

Jay Hill is a former Canadian politician and member of the Conservative Party of Canada. He was the Member of Parliament for the riding of Prince George—Peace River from 1993 until his retirement in 2010. He also served as Government House Leader in the House of Commons of Canada during his tenure. On July 21, 2010, Hill announced that he would be retiring at the May 2011 federal election. In October 2010, he announced he would retire on October 25, 2010.

Allan Kerpan was first elected to the House of Commons of Canada in the Moose Jaw—Lake Centre electoral district in the 1993 federal election. After realignment of riding boundaries, he was re-elected at the Blackstrap electoral district in the 1997 federal election. Kerpan was a member of the Reform Party, later renamed the Canadian Alliance. After serving in the 35th and 36th Canadian Parliaments, he did not seek a third term of office, leaving federal politics as of the 2000 federal election.

Allan Kerpan was also a member of the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan as a member of the Saskatchewan Party. He entered provincial politics in June 2003 when he won a by-election at the Carrot River Valley riding succeeding Carl Kwiatkowski whose death left the provincial electoral district vacant. Later that year, Kerpan was re-elected in the general provincial elections, after the boundaries of Carrot River Valley were realigned.

Peter Downing is a former member of the RCMP & Canadian Forces; is the Founder of Wexit Alberta, the Executive Director of Alberta Fights Back, and Co-Director of the Prairie Freedom Movement.

He is the organizer behind the “Should Alberta Ditch Canada?” digital billboard which gained coast-to-coast mainstream media attention in February 2019, helping bring Alberta Separation into the mainstream public consciousness. This campaign was the inspiration for the subsequent “Should Saskatchewan Leave Canada?” of March 2019, which further advanced the cause of Western Separation and gained international mainstream media attention.

His short and medium term political goals include official registration of Wexit Alberta, building strong electoral districts, and electing Wexit Party MLAs in upcoming by-elections.
