Ottawa: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has made it clear that he does not want any kind of war with the Alberta government, but when it comes to Alberta’s sovereignty, nothing is off the table.
Trudeau was speaking about the new controversial Sovereignty Act introduced by Alberta Premier Danielle Smith.
Speaking to reporters on his way to the Liberal Caucus meeting on Wednesday, Trudeau said his government will take a wait-and-see approach.
Trudeau said that he isn’t “looking for a fight” with Alberta, but the federal government is always ready to help Alberta residents in every way possible.
On Tuesday, Smith introduced the “Sovereignty Within a United Canada Act” in the Assembly. In this act, it was proposed that his cabinet could get new powers to rewrite provincial laws without passing any bill. Also, Alberta residents were also assured that there would be no need to leave Canada for this.
