Black on Alberta election

School of Communication and Culture Assoc. Prof. David Black was interviewed by the Canadian Press regarding Alberta premier-designate Jason Kenney’s tough political talk on pipelines and BC, and Kenney’s next political move.

Here is an excerpt:

David Black, a political communications expert at Victoria's Royal Roads University, said he expects Kenney to make good on his pledge to proclaim and attempt to use the powers of Bill 12, Preserving Canada's Economic Prosperity Act.

‘It will be a test of this government's willingness to turn the campaign rhetoric into political reality,’ he said. ‘All that was promised about a war footing and a war room, and a kind of actively belligerent UCP government, that will materialize if Bill 12 is made law.’

This story was first reported by the Canadian Press and appeared in the Times Colonist and 32 other publications.
