Pandemic isn't over but Kenney's truce with Ottawa certainly is - 2020-06-03
Kenney is now pivoting from the pandemic back to safer and more familiar territory.
That includes recalling the legislature to sit for the whole summer if necessary to pass his agenda that includes a bill to crack down on protests that interfere with rail lines and the shipment of oil. He is setting up an Alberta parole board and is once again talking about a "fair deal" for Alberta that could include forming its own provincial police force and pension plan.
He will soon be releasing a report from the government-sponsored economic relaunch committee whose members include former prime minister Stephen Harper. Harper recently wrote an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal arguing that after the pandemic we need to get back to smaller government. That'll be music to Kenney's ears.
