Premier Jason Kenney accused the federal Liberals on Wednesday of approving a $2.5-million grant to a "left wing special interest group" that was, in fact, made by the previous Conservative government under former prime minister Stephen Harper. .

Kenney made the claim while retweeting an op-ed from Canadian Taxpayers' Federation published in the Edmonton Sun on Tuesday.

"The federal government benefits massively from taxes generated by our oil & gas industry & workers," the tweet read. "So why did the Trudeau Liberals give $2.5 million to a left wing special interest group to attack our energy industry?"
