Jason Kenney opted to join Ontario counterpart Doug Ford in the Democratic doghouse Saturday as the Alberta premier vented his spleen about progressive presidential hopefuls who have vowed to block the controversial Keystone XL pipeline expansion.

With Ford seeking shelter from the blowback for having criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders the day before, Kenney chose to lean in, accusing certain Democratic presidential contenders — he did not name names — of betraying a close neighbour and ally and all but endorsing energy imports from "regressive regimes" in the Middle East.

"Many of them, quite rightly, admire Canada as a progressive liberal democracy, as a close friend and ally of the United States," Kenney said, answering a question he hadn't been asked during a joint news conference in Washington with Ford, Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe, Quebec's Francois Legault and Blaine Higgs of New Brunswick.
