Tax increases, suffocating regulations, and veto powers granted by courts to Aboriginal and environmental groups make it extremely difficult for Alberta to return to a competitive business environment.
Notley and Trudeau have throttled the energy sector, the engine of the Alberta economy, by regulating it to death.

Trudeau’s Liberals killed the Northern Gateway project and Energy East through ever-expanding regulations and pandering to Montreal and Quebec lobbyists.
Fortunately, for Albertans, we own our own resources, and we can elect governments that are accountable and then insist that they encourage entreprenuership. We all should be mad as hell and insist that we aren’t going to take it anymore.
Wake up! Take control again.
