Alberta This Week

What to Expect

The NDP’s provincial council meeting last weekend in Red Deer was intended to set the stage for the 2023 election. The event, however, was partially overshadowed by allegations of volunteer mistreatment. Rachel Notley has announced that an independent authority will evaluate the party’s human resources policies to address the issue, which was brought forward by 15 constituency associations. This will remain a topic of conversation as the party works to get past the controversy.

Meanwhile, Premier Kenney and Energy Minister Sonya Savage are back in Washington to promote Alberta energy. They will attend the IHS Oil Sands Dialogue and participate in events organized by the Pathways Alliance.

The Week That Was

To support the role of women in Alberta’s economy and future, the province has introduced the Women’s Hub directory to help connect women with the necessary services and resources.

Having stepped down to run for the UCP leadership, Rajan Sawhney and Rebecca Schulz have been replaced in Cabinet by Acting Minister of Transportation Prasad Panda (Sawhney’s replacement) and Acting Minister of Children’s Services Jason Luan (Schulz’s replacement) in addition to retaining their current portfolios.
