Ignorant and disloyal? Alberta's Kenney and Notley swap personal attacks - 2019-11-08
A legislature meeting on budget numbers got personal Thursday, when Premier Jason Kenney accused NDP Leader Rachel Notley of being ignorant to Alberta's plight and Notley questioned his loyalty to Canada.
The angry cross-talk erupted when Notley asked Kenney why he is threatening to hold a referendum on equalization, even though Alberta has no direct power to change the constitutionally protected federal funding program.
Kenney has said he will hold a referendum on equalization payments if there is not progress on initiatives, such as pipelines, to get more of Alberta's oil and gas to market.
