Kenney will campaign for federal Conservatives, says Trudeau has 'damaged national unity' elxn43 cdnpoli

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney says he’s been contacted by federal Conservative candidates to help drum up support for their campaigns, and he’s happy to comply if his schedule allows.

Kenney told CTV’s Power Play that he doesn’t expect to be on the campaign trail all that often, but several candidates have reached out to him for help. Sign up for our Election Dispatch newsletter for a daily campaign update “I support (Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer) enthusiastically and I’d be happy to pitch in,” he said Wednesday. “Obviously, I’ve got more than a full-time job, but Albertans desperately want a change in the federal government and if I can contribute in some small way, I certainly will.” During a media availability in Calgary earlier in the day, Kenney said he is encouraging fellow members of the United Conservative Party to help out as well, and commended some of his party members for spending their own time and money to help federal Conservative candidates in tightly contested ridings outside the province. Kenney said the Trudeau government has been at least partly to blame for several years of decline in the Alberta energy sector. On Tuesday, the Alberta government issued a constitutional challenge against Bill C-69, which Kenney calls the “No More Pipelines Bill.” Bill C-69 created a new authority to assess the environmental, economic, and public health impacts of large industrial projects, such as pipelines and sea ports. Kenney, a former cabinet minister in Stephen Harper’s Conservative government, said the growing angst among Albertans concerning Confederation will not be going away if Trudeau were to be re-elected. An Abacus Data poll from July showed that 25 per cent of Albertans favour separatism, while a poll from the Environics Institute back in March showed that the majority of Albertans believe they receive so few benefits from the federal government that they might be better off leaving. “Some of that is people just blowing off steam, but underneath it lies a truly deep frustration with the way the federation is working,” Kenney said. “I believe the Trudeau government has damaged national unity.” With files from The Canadian Press RELATED IMAGES Alberta Premier Jason Kenney discusses the accomplishments of his government in its first 100 days in office, in Edmonton on Wednesday August 7, 2019.

jkenney is backing the wrong party. Scheer will never get a pipeline built because he is supporting the Paris Agreement now. Kenny needs to take a serious look at the CPC platform and compare it to the People's Party platform. There is a solid plan in the People's platform. This from a Separatist. That’s some top notch projection.

Right on the money!! He (Kenney) is damaging National Unity seems more like buddying up w. white supremacists is definitely building up to 'damage' national unity + $$ CUTS to PUBLIC services - ALL Cdns TAX $$- be honest vs busy pointing fingers at everybody else rexglacer Kenny and conservative Albertan MLAs will campaign for Scheer because they have a complete and total lack of confidence that Scheer can pull this off on his own. And they are absolutely RIGHT. 😊

He just doesn't want to do his job. Too bad the AB taxpayers are going to pay for this. So Jason Kenney is going down east to deliver his message that Quebec and the maritimes are a drain on confederation and this is supposed to hurt Trudeau. Got it.

Kenney government investing more than $80M on 4,000 addictions treatment spaces in AlbertaAlberta Premier Jason Kenney says the money is part of a $140-million commitment to addictions and mental-health care in the United Conservatives’ election platform Good investment None of the other programs work they way they are intended without treatment space available when it’s needed. Kenny just announced they will only help you if you're addicted to voting conservative

Wow! Didn’t see that one coming ... Anyone that thinks Alberta is owned by anything than oil companies, is sleeping. Kenney doesn't give a single fuck about Canadian unity as long as he can place the blame on someone else to please big Oil and Gas. NeverScheer FordsBestBuddy Kenney, Ford and Scheer use the same play book: division and projection to control the public.

Canada ranked 3rd best country in the world Says the crooked leader who promotes separation in Alberta. Trudeau has damaged national unity by his ego and refusing to work with anyone who dare question him he wants a dictatorship. Kenney should pay attention to his own province! Says the guy who is in bed with white supremacists. Stop with your own devision AndrewScheer

Says the guy who’s been riling up separatism talks in Alberta.

andrewscheer's biggest problem is his friends. With friends like this, who needs enemies? Oh Kenney, in what way has Trudeau 'damaged national unity?' So easy to say... back up, please? Ford can help him. Yes the party that constantly attacks Trudeau with lies and division and in our case in Ontario had to give a 6 month vacation to its caucus because of all the division they sowed is ALL for unity in the country. I’m very disappointed that some Canadians have gone Trumpian.

Of course he will. He's aiming for the leadership. Yes. The guy who floated Alberta separation is talking about damaged unity. Trudeau has but from a positive point of view IF Trudeau gets back in then we will have the momentum to separate No kidding but I'm thinking it's the Conservatives national unity planning that gave Canadians the second coming of Truedeau. Ontario is cutting & still growing with cranes & deemed to poverty disabled injured workers. Not many notice till corporate negligence hits a family.

Bring Kenny to Quebec and Ontario. He’s as popular as Ebola. From a guy whose trying to bet his political fortune on disunity, which he is doing his damndest to foment.

Pallister’s PCs re-elected with majority in Manitoba, solidifying bloc of conservative premiers opposing TrudeauThe PCs won the vote after a campaign in which Pallister pledged to relax the tight control he has exercised on the provincial budget since being elected Premier in 2016 Weakening our chances of avoiding catastrophic climate change. Manitoba keeps its sanity.

Shocker I hope all four Liberal MPs in Alberta are swept away When I see how Kenney is wasting Alberta’s money to push a political agenda - I am fed up. Yet he won’t boost Alberta’s revenue by shipping oil by rail!!!’ Spending $30 million on political propaganda while families can’t afford bus fees. Slashing services! Never vote Cons!!

The Alberta taxpayer is paying for Conservative electioneering, yet another innovative and reprehensible way Conservatives strive to steal in order to scrape up votes. Stay home please Yes Trudeau does and doesnt care

Quebec skies brighten for Trudeau, cloud over for Conservatives: pollLiberals have 37 per cent of voter support in latest poll, while Conservatives drop to 21 per cent Quebec, unfortunately, can be bought, as can Ontario. And if you don't attack Quebec of their Bill 21 we even better. ChooseForward RedWave LiberalCanada Pretty sad
