Alberta Premier Danielle Smith is pushing back against the Trudeau government’s “Just Transition” bill, which Smith claims will shut down Alberta’s energy sector. The premier is also calling on Alberta NDP Leader Rachel Notley to “put aside partisanship” and join the UCP government in its opposition to the federal bill.
