Former Prime Minister Stephen Harper released a video on YouTube that took shots at both Justin Trudeau and Alberta’s New Democratic Party leader Rachel Notley.

The United Conservative Party emailed and texted Harper’s message out to constituents on Tuesday.

Harper stated that employment rates have improved in Alberta since 2015, but warned “that could all be derailed if the Notley NDP wins.”

He added that the NDP’s “job-killing, tax-hiking, anti-energy policies lead to mass layoffs, business closures, and a recession.”

“It took years to recover from the last NDP government,” he said.

“We can’t risk going backwards again.” 

Harper has been relatively quiet in regards to making political announcements and endorsements since he left office in 2015. 

However, last year, Harper released a video announcement to endorse Conservative leadership frontrunner Pierre Poilievre.

In 2021, Harper stood up for Alberta and Saskatchewan while Justin Trudeau’s climate agenda was set to obliterate the oil and gas industry.

“I made it a habit not to go to war with provinces,” Harper said while speaking to the Canada West Foundation virtually.

Harper continued by comparing his and Trudeau’s governments without naming names, arguing that singling out Provinces that didn’t vote for you is “inexcusable.”

“Obviously, the way some things are being handled today — where certain parts of the country are singled out in ways that others aren’t — I think is really inexcusable,” said Harper.

“Frankly, I don’t see that happening in other parts of the world.”

He further illustrated how the current government is singling out Alberta and Saskatchewan, saying that it would be like him arguing that the government needs to cripple Montreal’s aerospace industry to lower global emissions.

Harper also critiqued the lofty ambitions of environmentalists, saying that all of their green solutions depend on “technological developments that simply have not occurred yet.”
