Alberta Premier Jason Kenney's most recent political career is defined by battling perceived inequities with Ottawa. The province's municipalities seem to feel the same way about their lopsided relationship with the legislature.

Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi recently pointed out the irony in Kenney's public fight with Ottawa over transfer payments.

"The real fiscal imbalance in this country is not between provinces and regions, it's between cities and everyone else. Taxpayers in the cities pay the freight… If you want to talk about fair deals, I'm happy to have that conversation."
