Alberta Pension, police force and provincial revenue agency all on the table for new government panel - 2019-11-09
On Saturday, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney announced the creation of the Fair Deal Panel, which will meet to research how best to advance the province's interests in areas like building energy pipelines. But the panel will also look into far deeper changes that would shift Alberta away from much of the rest of the country.
On the table for the Fair Deal Panel will be research into whether Alberta should establish its own formal provincial constitution, provincial police force, Alberta Pension Plan, its own Chief Firearms Office and a provincial revenue agency that would collect taxes directly.
"Our government is prepared to deploy every legal, economic and constitutional tool at our disposal to maximize our leverage and to win a fair deal for Alberta," Kenney said to the conference on Saturday.
