Alberta’s new government plans to take on a brutal fight with Ottawa over the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion and will undo the carbon tax.
The United Conservative Party will be Alberta’s new government, receiving a majority mandate from voters Tuesday night.
The party, at the helm of premier-designate Jason Kenney, will send at least 60 MLAs to the legislature this spring with a strong rural voice.
“Our province has sent a message to Canada and the rest of the world, Alberta is open for business,” Kenney declared to supporters in Calgary.
“To the unemployed, to those who have given up, to the small business owners hanging on, to the people who got degrees and cant find work, to those who have lost their homes and their hope after years of economic decline and stagnation. To them, we send this message: Help is on the way. Hope is on the way.”
Kenney’s government will shift Alberta significantly, as the leader plans to take on a brutal fight with Ottawa over the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion and equalization, as well as cut corporate taxes and undo the NDP’s signature environmental policy, the carbon tax.
