Former media baron Conrad Black called for the "persecution" of Alberta's energy sector to end during a keynote speech at a conference hosted by Alberta Proud, a third-party election advertiser.

"While Alberta accepts that it isn't the ambition or the intention of the federal government to persecute Alberta and lower its living standard, that is the effect of their policies," Black said in an interview with CBC News following his speech Saturday. "They're doing it out of a fear of a fate whose likelihood is based on very flimsy suppositions and dubious advocacy by a lot of zealots."

Black also railed against Canada's climate policy during his speech, arguing that all of Canada suffers when Alberta's natural resources are targeted.
