Premier Jason Kenney said Friday that he sees a future where Alberta continues to be a key global supplier of oil and gas, and that his government has no plans to speak with U.S. politicians who advocate for economies to transition away from fossil fuels.

The premier's comments were made at a news conference after a reporter asked whether, given the staggering recent drop in oil prices amid the coronavirus pandemic that last week saw prices even move into the negatives, Alberta would consider having its new representative in Washington speak to Green New Deal advocates.

"That kind of question, in the middle of an economic crisis, from a Calgary-based media outlet — really frankly throws me for a loop," Kenney said to the reporter.
