Kenney off to Montreal, Big Apple to talk pipelines
Alberta Premier Jason Kenney is travelling to Montreal and Washington, D.C., this week to promote the government’s work to drive investment, expand Alberta exports and get pipelines built.
According to Canadian Press, Kenney will meet with business leaders in Montreal and do media interviews.
In Washington, he’s set to attend National Governors Association meetings along with Ontario Premier Doug Ford, Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe and Quebec Premier Francois Legault.
Kenney has previously taken Legault to task for opposing new pipelines while his province benefits from Alberta’s oil and gas wealth.
“Alberta’s economic future depends on new private sector investment. That’s why I have put a priority on meeting with key investors to tell them about the tremendous opportunities that exist in Alberta, and the policies that are making us one of the most competitive places for job creation in North America,” Kenney said in the statement.
