The recent United Conservative Party (UCP) annual general meeting saw over 3600 attendees, and among the topics discussed, the pushback against the federal government’s carbon tax by the Alberta government took center stage.
One of the highlights of the convention was an exclusive interview with Alberta’s Minister of Environment and Protected Areas, Rebecca Schulz. Minister Schulz discussed the federal Liberals’ climate plan and their special carbon tax carve-outs for parts of the country where they are trying to secure votes. She criticized the federal Liberals’ environmentalism, suggesting that it has more to do with political posturing than protecting the planet. Minister Schulz also addressed the UCP’s renewable energy pause and the federal 2035 net-zero goal in previous discussions.
Another exclusive interview was conducted with the Alberta Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, Brian Jean. Minister Jean emphasized that Alberta was no longer apologizing for its natural resources and that the UCP would continue to advocate for Alberta energy and jobs not only nationally but internationally.
Minister of Affordability and Utilities Nathan Neudorf and Parliamentary Secretary for Affordability and Utilities Chantelle De Jonge also weighed in on the topic. They criticized the Liberal government’s hypocrisy on the Atlantic Canada carbon tax break and its impact on working-class families. Both Neudorf and De Jonge commented on the momentum of the UCP AGM and the new brand of unapologetic conservatism emerging from Alberta under Danielle Smith’s leadership.
