I've been here before and I'm not alone. People across BC receive news like this every day. My message to all British Columbians: if you're concerned about something, don't put it off. Please get it checked as soon as you can.

We’re putting Justin Trudeau and his new extremist Environment Minister on notice: Albertans want a fair deal NOW! MLA @NACMilliken laid it all out in the Assembly yesterday. ⬇⬇⬇

We’re also sending at-home rapid COVID-19 test kits to schools with outbreaks. Parents will be able to test their children at home & get results quickly and easily. This will help us limit transmission in schools and keep students and teachers safe. (3/3)

For graduating students, we will also lower ⬇ the weight of diploma exams from 30% of their final grade to 10%. Because of the pandemic, some students haven’t written exams at all since March 2020. We hope this will help students breathe a little easier! (2/3)

Spoke in the legislature on our effort to strike down any remaining barriers to labour mobility. With faster credential recognition, we will make it easier for Canadians from other provinces to come to Alberta and build our economy.

The results are in! A clear majority of Albertans have sent a powerful message to the rest of Canada on equalization. This strong democratic expression gives Alberta’s government a renewed mandate to pursue a fair deal for all Albertans.

We have just tabled a bill to tackle the looming labour shortage and make it easier for Canadians to get credentials recognized in Alberta. The Labour Mobility Act will help create more jobs, a stronger workforce, and a faster recovery. More details:

Good point 👇 Killing jobs and industries is not charity.  “Exactly what “charitable” activity is being performed by a group that aims to shut down a fossil fuel plant, block a forest development, or champion windmills?

"Canada needs Alberta’s economy. Albertans contributed a net $240 billion over 11 years to cover federal government spending elsewhere. In large part those contributions have been fuelled by the oil & gas sector & hundreds of thousands of well-paid jobs."
