Premier Jason Kenney's United Conservative Party government introduced its first piece on legislation on Wednesday, proposing to scrap the province's carbon tax and raising the stakes in its fight with the federal Liberal government over climate action.

The tabling of Bill 1, An Act to Repeal the Carbon Tax, fulfilled a key election promise for Kenney, who led the United Conservative Party to a majority victory in an election last month.

"We campaigned on scrapping the job-killing carbon tax and Albertans responded loud and clear," Kenney said in a statement.
