True North’s Andrew Lawton caught up with Premier Danielle Smith following her speech at the Canada Strong and Free Networking Conference in Ottawa for a wide-ranging discussion about Alberta’s priorities.

Smith took aim at the Trudeau government’s climate change agenda and “just transition,” which she argues unfairly targets Alberta. She explains how the Alberta government is responding to the federal government’s demands and what the oil and gas sector is already doing for the environment.

Plus, with a looming spring election, Andrew wants to know who Smith considers to be her main opponent – Alberta NDP leader Rachel Notley or Prime Minister Justin Trudeau?
