Alberta and Saskatchewan must take immediate action to prioritize local jobs and obtain greater autonomy within confederation.
A global pandemic has, inconceivably, led to even greater attacks on our people and industries.
We were already facing an international energy strategy designed to bring us to our knees. Our farmers are facing greater trade barriers. To top it off, we are enduring federal policies hamstringing our ability to grow our traditional and emerging industries and welcome the world to our borders.
