In late September, Government House Leader Jason Nixon asked Speaker Nathan Cooper to recall MLAs to the chamber a week earlier than initially planned in order to debate an ambitious suite of bills.
“Alberta’s legislature passed more bills than any other, including the federal Parliament, over the course of the spring 2020 sitting. We are aiming to move a similarly ambitious set of bills through the chamber this time around. Albertans expect us to keep our foot on the gas, even in the midst of a global pandemic and recession that are having a devastating impact on the province’s economy. Alberta’s government is doing everything possible to get us through this challenging time, while continuing to implement our platform commitments.” – Jason Kenney, Premier
