Alberta Premier Danielle Smith sent a message to the Prime Minister of Canada and his climate change minister Steven Guilbeault on Wednesday when she told them to read the Canadian Constitution.

Smith made her comments after Calgary Sun reporter Rick Bell asked for her reaction to an open letter Trudeau sent her, in which he chided her for considering a referendum for Albertans on withdrawing from the Canadian Pension Plan (CPP) and opting for a provincial pension scheme. 

Smith called Trudeau’s letter “inappropriate in tone” and said she thinks it stemmed from Trudeau’s bitterness over losing a Supreme Court decision last week that ruled against one of the Trudeau regime’s keystone environmental laws.

“I think it’s because they lost a Supreme Court ruling on Friday and they are trying to act like it didn’t come down, but I can tell you, it did,” Smith told Bell. “I think this is a reaction to having lost so badly.” 

Smith further said that, should Albertans vote to withdraw from the CPP, it’s within their constitutional right to do so as per section 94a of the Constitution.

“I’ve read the Constitution. I know what it says. I think that they should read the ruling and read the Constitution and stay in their lane.” 

“Irritating” Guilbeault 

Smith further said that federal climate change minister Steven Guilbeault is “quite frankly, becoming quite irritating to both me and my environment minister Rebecca Schultz.” 

“He’s an ideologue,” she added.

“I just take him less and less seriously because quite frankly, they lost at the Supreme Court.”
