Highlights of the speech include the connection between policy and a strong economy, the importance of Alberta’s energy sector to the Canadian economy and the construction of pipelines being the key to national unity that will lead to a strong and prosperous Canada.
“Albertans aren’t asking for special favours, all they are asking for is to be treated fairly and for governments to stop hindering the full potential of our energy sector,” Wildrose Leader Brian Jean said. “I am thankful to the C.D. Howe Institute for inviting me to speak, and look forward to sharing more about the importance of Alberta’s economy throughout the rest of the week.”
