Opposition Mlas: Alberta I and Jason Kenney

opposition mlas: Kenney used a news conference to introduce his two new Opposition MLAs from Thursday's by-elections to portray Dreeshen's eight-month contribution to President Trump's 2016 election as likely to be a benefit to Alberta, according to Rabble. I think it's actually helpful to have in our caucus an MLA who can get people on the phone in the U.S. administration, said Kenney--suggesting, I guess, that Dreeshen, 30, can actually do that. But Jason Kenney, former Harper Government Cabinet minister and leader of Alberta's United Conservative Party, decided to double down yesterday and defend the efforts of Innisfail-Sylvan Lake UCP by-election victor Devin Dreeshen for his work two years ago on President Trump's campaign. Kenney went to some pains to ensure we all understood that neither he nor Dreeshen actually support Trump's trade policies -- vis- -vis Canada, anyway, if not the European Union. Dreeshen went even further in an interview with Lacombe Online, a community website in the region, telling reporter Joseph Ho When I was down there, I wasn't picking a particular candidate. Devin and I totally agree with each other in our opposition to the Trump Administration's protectionism, particularly our opposition to his unprovoked tariffs on our steel and aluminum industry, Kenney was quoted carefully claiming in a story by the Canadian Press.
