The NDP's Cam Gardner isn't buying what Jason Kenney and the UCP are selling when it comes to their conservation policies.

The UCP say they have a plan to sell off some Crown Land to make up for land around Alberta being gobbled up by municipal annexation.

Gardner, who's running here in Livingstone-Macleod says he's surprised at Kenny's sudden change of heart.

"I find it puzzling that Mr. Kenney is making moves, choosing environmental stewardship and conservation planning, all of a sudden, when he's talking about cutting education, health care, day care and a whole bunch of services at the same time."

Gardner says he doesn't trust Kenney or the UCP to follow through on their promises of conservation.
