  Kelly McParland: It took decades to push Alberta to this point — but it was inevitable The combative address Jason Kenney delivered in Red Deer on Saturday didn’t come out of the blue. This is a storm cloud that’s been hovering around Alberta for a very long time. Eventually it was going to erupt. There have been plenty of precursors. From Pierre Trudeau’s first lunge at Alberta’s oil wealth almost 40 years ago via the National Energy Program, Albertans have kept a wary eye on Ottawa and its grabby revenue fingers. The distrust was there in Preston Manning’s creation of the Reform Party; again in the 2001 “firewall” letter signed by Stephen Harper and others; in “the West wants in” movement and in Rachel Notley’s discovery that electing a New Democrat premier

EDMONTON — Alberta Opposition Leader Rachel Notley says she hasn ' t decided when she will return to the legislature chamber. Notley was tossed out on Tuesday for refusing to apologize after accusing government house leader Jason Nixon of misleading the house.

EDMONTON — Alberta Opposition Leader Rachel Notley says she hasn't decided when she will return to the legislature chamber.

Notley was tossed out on Tuesday for refusing to apologize after accusing government house leader Jason Nixon of misleading the house.

Notley says the Speaker's office has made it clear to her that she must apologize before she will be allowed back.

Notley was ousted during questions about a bill that directs election commissioner Lorne Gibson be fired.

Gibson has been investigating fundraising violations by Premier Jason Kenney's United Conservative Party.

Notley objected after Nixon told the house that under the bill no one is to be fired.

She says her caucus is looking for ways to stop the bill, and adds that even by introducing it, Kenney has earned the dubious title of "the most corrupt and anti-democratic premier in the history of the country."

She says she can't find another example in Canada where a premier or prime minister shut down a quasi-judicial inquiry into his or her actions.


Can anything stop Jason Kenney? Alberta premier rides high approval rating as his party gathers for convention .
EDMONTON — On Monday, Premier Jason Kenney stood beside the Toronto MP and Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland in his office at the Alberta legislature and warmly welcomed her, an “Alberta girl” from Peace River, Alta., back home. That was after earlier this month, in a speech before conservative faithful, condemning the “record of assaults” of Freeland’s own Liberal government on Alberta. This is part of Kenney’s skill as a politician. He knows his audience and can be a peacemaker behind doors while delivering a rousing barn burner of a speech in public. He, in the words of country legend Kenny Rogers, knows when to hold ‘em.
