A provincial election will be held in Alberta on May 5, 2015. Arthritis Consumer Experts (ACE) advocates that arthritis, a disease affecting more than 500,000 Albertans, according to the Alberta Bone and Joint Health Institute, should be an issue of great importance to candidates running for office.
ACE sent an open letter and a survey to candidates running in the May 5 Alberta election.

Any responses received by ACE will be catalogued and posted as they arrive.
