This Week In Alberta:

  • After weeks of calling out the Alberta government for their lack of transparency, we finally have an updated Order Paper and a semi-updated Legislative Calendar. This allows groups like ours to prepare for the week ahead and more effectively hold the government to account.

  • The Legislature will convene on Wednesday. Currently, Bill 1 (the Critical Infrastructure Defence Act), Bill 2 (the Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Amendment Act), and Bill 4 (the Fiscal Planning and Transparency (Fixed Budget Period) Amendment Act) are all parked at Second reading.

  • Minister Savage will be introducing Bill 7 (the Responsible Energy Development Amendment Act), which obviously amends the Responsible Energy Development Act, though no information about the actual contents of the bill has been announced so far.


Last Week In Alberta:




The Alberta Institute doesn't accept any government funding and never will. We think you should be free to choose, for yourself, which organizations to support. If you're in a position to contribute financially, you can make a donation here.



If you're not in a position to donate, we understand, but if you appreciate our work, you can help by spreading our message. Please forward this email to your friends, follow us on Facebook and Twitter, and help make sure every Albertan knows what's going on in our province.
