Jason Kenney's UCP government appears to have slashed funding for Alberta's energy war room by two-thirds and hid the details of the cut in a section of their budget that is devoted to reducing carbon emissions.

Touted by Kennney as a "war room" to battle the enemies of Alberta's oil industry when it first launched in 2019, the Canadian Energy Centre was originally given a $30 million annual budget.

But according to Alberta's 2021 provincial budget tabled last week, the war room's budget has been drastically reduced by $18 million for 2021-2022.
