Premier Jason Kenney said Bloc Québécois Leader Yves-François Blanchet is "obsessed" with attacking Albertans, who have paid billions of dollars in federal taxes that helped fund Quebec social programs and services.

"Please stop kicking us while we're down," Kenney said Thursday during an Edmonton news conference.

"We Albertans have been generous, and we will continue to be generous, but this, these attacks on our natural resource industries are unwarranted, they are divisive, they're — I believe, in a way — unCanadian at a time like this."

Both Blanchet and Green Party parliamentary Leader Elizabeth May said Wednesday the federal government should abandon any plan to offer financial aid to the languishing oil and gas industry.
