One proposal, Resolution 4, is aimed at protecting an individual's right to refuse any medical procedure they might disagree with.

The UCP government has come under fire for its own policies of going against professional advice when it comes to medical procedures and mandates. "Parents, not schools, are the legal guardians of their children," the UCP said, referring to recent legislation passed by the current governments of Saskatchewan and New Brunswick.Some of the proposals are geared toward government itself, such as Resolution 13, which asks for a ban on the use of electronic tabulation machines in any provincial election.

Resolution 15, infringement protection, aims to protect all of the rights of Albertans, not just those formally recognized in the Constitution and Charter. "Albertans suffered under Federal: Emergency Measures Act (2022 truck parking problem); bans of legally purchased firearms; attacks on freedom of speech; and over-taxation wealth transfer to the East. Albertans suffered under provincial 2020-22 pandemic restrictions and the 2013 High River gun grab," the UCP said.

Calling the facilities "a failed experiment," the UCP says they haven't made any steps toward ending drug addiction in communities.
