Poilievre endorses Smith, slams Notley

Conservative Party leader of Canada, Pierre Poilievre, endorsed Premier Danielle Smith and slammed Opposition NDP leader Rachel Notley, just days before Alberta’s provincial election.

Poilievre endorses Smith, slams Notley

Alberta’s May 29 election shows United Conservative Party leader, Premier Danielle Smith, slightly ahead in most polls over the New Democrat Party Opposition leader Rachel Notley.

Poilievre’s message focused on the economy. He said Notley would work for Trudeau, helping him “attack the energy sector.”

“That’ll mean a weaker economy with less money for schools and hospitals,” Poilievre said.

Poilievre’s further said Smith would “fight the carbon tax, stand up for Alberta, and its energy sector.”

He added Smith would “unleash the full potential of our Alberta economy in order to grow and prosper in the future — that means more money for schools and hospitals.”

He continued, “In other words, vote for Alberta, vote Conservative, vote early, and vote now.”

Poilievre’s endorsement of Smith comes just four days before the election, though voting is currently open.

A May 24 Mainstreet Research poll shows that 46% of voters plan to vote for the UCP compared to 42% for the NDP.

Moreover, 39% of voters believe Smith won last week’s debate, while 25% believe Notley won.

During the debate, Smith said that Notley would walk “in lockstep with Justin Trudeau.”

Smith hit on Notley multiple times for not standing up against the feds’ 2035 net neutrality agenda, which Smith has been fighting back against. Smith said the UCP’s policy is to achieve net neutrality by 2050.

“[Notley] wants to achieve the 2035 net-zero target put forward by Justin Trudeau – that’ll cost $52 billion dollars, that’ll increase your power bill by 40%, and we can’t afford to do that,” Smith said. 

“Where do you think Justin Trudeau got the idea for Just Transition, and for an emissions cap, and for a carbon tax? He got it from Ms. Notley when she was Premier.”
