Derek Fildebrandt is the Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) for Strathmore-Brooks and serves as the Official Opposition Shadow Minister of Finance.

Derek is married to his wife Emma, is the father of a beautiful baby girl named Winifred, and has two German Shepherds. He is a good fisherman, an adequate hunter, and a poor guitar player.

Fildebrandt has been a long-time advocate of unifying the Wildrose and PC parties into a new, united, grassroots and principled conservative party. In his time as an MLA, Fildebrandt has consistently stood for limited government, free speech and personal responsibility.

Fildebrandt served as both the Alberta Director and National Research Director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. Federally, he fought to end the Liberal long-gun registry, scrap gold-plated MP pensions, and require First Nation Chiefs to publicly disclose their salaries to band members. In Alberta, he led the fight against the Redford government’s deficit budgets and abuse of taxpayers’ money.
