Jason Kenney, Premier of Alberta under the United Conservative Party has put all of his political effort to get Alberta workers back to the workplace whether it’s safe or not. Kenney’s Government continues to put pressure on the province to support the energy sector.

Kenney is using the pandemic as a tool to weaken decades of important environmental legislation and to slacken the rules on environmental testing within the energy sector. His government plans on closing and moving provincial parks to the private sector, and putting the focus and money in the oil and gas industry. Over one third of the sites in Alberta's park system, 184 sites, will be eliminated or privatized.
