The United Conservative Party spent their Family Day long weekend gearing up for the coming provincial election.

They gathered MLA's, Candidates and others in Edmonton for an "Election Readiness Conference."

A couple of policy announcements came out over the weekend, with Leader Jason Kenney saying if elected, he, as Premier will take a 10 per cent wage cut, while MLA's will have to make due with five per cent less.

However, Kenney was quick to point out, the cuts don't signal a move to cut public sector wages.

He also announced a UCP government would repeal Bill 6, or the Provinces Farm Safety Legislation, as well as putting stop to the NDP's K-to-12 curriculum review, saying it's an "ideological rewrite."

We'll go to the polls sometime between mid-March to the end of May.
