UCP frontrunner attacked for past WEF support

Statements made by Danielle Smith in 2014 are making the rounds of the Albertan political sphere, which appears to demonstrate the UCP leadership frontrunner supporting the World Economic Forum (WEF).

In 2014, while serving as leader of the Wildrose Party, Smith called the postponement of a ‘prestigious’ WEF visit in Alberta “highly embarrassing.”

She also said that not being able to sit down with the WEF was the figurative equivalent of being given a “black eye” by the socialist Premier at the time, Alison Redford.

“It seems pretty perplexing that the Premier would give us a black eye like this. It’s pretty unprofessional,” said Smith.

“Hopefully, it will happen,” Smith said about the WEF gathering in the Albertan National Park location, “but I think we should expect a little more professionalism and a little bit more attention to details coming out of the Premier’s office when it’s something so important.”

These statements conflict with Smith’s recently stated opposition to the Forum’s globalist positions that are wreaking havoc in countries around the world.

Smith appears to have done a complete 180 on her former stance regarding the WEF, frequently lambasting the organization and promising to oppose their influence on Alberta.

In one tweet, Smith went so far as to state that she would ban members of the Alberta government from being in contact with the organization if elected.

In another recent tweet, Smith tagged the Forum and PM Justin Trudeau in a notice that she would take on the “global “woke” establishment” that’s “causing economic chaos around the world.”

More recently, she had a brief sparring match with leadership candidate Travis Toews after Toews criticized her speech, stating that she’d attempt to get Alberta to ‘net-zero,’ a central tenant of the World Economic Forum.

Since then, Smith has said that she already believes Alberta is net-negative.

She later responded, “Travis Toews’ latest attack suggesting I’m promoting Justin Trudeau’s insane green agenda is untrue. The fact is the WEF agenda is corrupt, and no one in my government will have any ties to it. Travis, let’s stop the silly attacks.”

The Counter Signal has reached out to Smith for comment and will update this story.
