Alberta’s “United Conservative Party” is trying to kick out Derek Sloan, a member of its government, after it was revealed he received a political donation from a known white supremacist. Sloan is arguing in his defence that he “received 13,000 donations” and couldn’t keep track of every single donor.
Sloan has also made it known that the another white supremacist voted in the last UCP leadership contest, and that the voter has not been removed from the party.
And the UCP leadership knows he’s still a party member.
Remember, Alberta, you could have kept the NDP in power and handled COVID-19 properly without corruption, incompetence and racism. Now you have the second worst number of cases per capita.
What do I mean by incompetence? UCP “leader” Jason Kenny is whining because Biden cancelled the Keystone oil pipeline. Kenney wasted taxpayers’ money on the deal despite knowing it was bad for the environment and economy.
Alberta Premier Jason Kenney is asking the prime minister to press the United States Administration for compensation amid the cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline project.
Within hours of being sworn in on Wednesday, U.S. President Joe Biden signed an executive order revoking the Keystone XL permit.
The move drew quick criticism from the premiers of Alberta and Saskatchewan, whose energy sectors were depending on the US$8 billion project.
Last spring, the Alberta government invested about US$1.1 billion (C$1.5 billion) in the project. Kenney has said the province has about $1 billion at risk if the project is killed.
