Alberta Premier Danielle Smith is standing by her proposed ban on gender reassignment treatments and hormone therapies for minors despite criticism from the left. Smith’s events in Ottawa and Toronto were met with protests by trans rights activists. True North’s Andrew Lawton discussed the policies and response to them in a sit-down interview with Smith, as well as the general tenor of Alberta’s relationship with the federal government.
Also, Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre has confirmed, after several days, that he supports the ban on puberty blockers for minors.
Plus, in today’s edition of Unjust Transition, Andrew speaks to Secure Energy CEO Rene Amirault.
