Alberta Premier Jason Kenney is supporting Erin O’Toole to become the next leader of the Conservative Party of Canada. In a statement to Conservative Party members, Kenney stated that “I know that we can rely on Erin to be that strong leader. That is why I support Erin O’Toole for Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada.” Kenney also stated the underlying reasons for his support of O’Toole, placing particular emphasis on western alienation. “Canada’s economy is under attack by well-organized, foreign-funded special interests,” he said. “Dozens of resource projects have been delayed or cancelled. We have lost more than $200 billion dollars in investment. Tens of thousands of Canadians have lost their jobs. I worry they will lose their hope next.”
