OTTAWA – The Prime Minister has been asked by Senator Doug Black to hold a cabinet meeting in Alberta and see firsthand the devastation caused to the province by government policies.
In a letter to the Prime Minister today, Senator Black has suggested a Cabinet meeting in Alberta would be beneficial to government and would be a big statement to Albertans that the government will address their concerns.
“I believe the government hasn’t heard from communities such as Fort McMurray and Grande Prairie about their struggles,” said Senator Doug Black.
“My recent visits to these communities left no doubt in my mind that they are suffering.
“If this government is going to work for all Canadians, it should come to see the negative effects of their policies on those very same citizens and, if they come to Alberta they will see not all Canadians have been treated fairly.”
