Alberta Minister Devin Dreeshen implicitly slammed former Premier Jason Kenney during a recent interview on an Edmonton radio talk show. 

Former Premier Kenney slammed by Alberta Minister

Minister of Transportation and Economic Corridors, Devin Dreeshen, made his comments while speaking to Premier Smith’s expected invocation of Alberta’s Sovereignty Act as a response to the federal government’s environmental regulations.

630 CHED AM radio’s co-host pointed out to Dreeshen that the United Conservative Party’s (UCP) former leader, Jason Kenney, previously suggested a Sovereignty Act would be illegal and undemocratic.  

Dreeshen responded, “I wonder what he’s doing now,” in a clear shot towards the former UCP leader. 

In May, Kenney announced he would resign from the province’s top job after barely surviving a leadership review with just 51.4% of voters’ support.

In 2022, Kenney attacked Smith’s initial proposal of the Sovereignty Act naming it “cockamamie” and “illegal,” going so far as to say, “The proposal is for Alberta basically to ignore and violate the Constitution in a way that is unprecedented in Canadian history. To not enforce the laws of the land, including federal laws, which include the Criminal Code, which is nuts.”

Dreeshen also spoke on the United Conservative Party’s (UCP) recent decision to ban photo radar on the ring-roads surrounding Calgary and Edmonton, as well as “fishing hole” locations across the province.
Previously accused by a staffer of misconduct with regards to alcohol, Dreeshen resigned as minister of Agriculture and Forestry in 2021. However, this remains somewhat suspicious as during this time Dreeshen internally resisted the Premier’s COVID policy, which escalated tension between Dreeshen and the cabinet.
