CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Sept. 8, 2016) - Join the Economic Club of Canada (EC) for its first event of the fall season. Jason Kenney will address EC members and guests on Friday, September 9th. The Economic Club of Canada, a national non-partisan policy platform, will expand its presence in Calgary over the coming year.
"Jason Kenney is seeking a mandate to create a united free-enterprise party. Since the NDP was elected in 2015, the Alberta Advantage has been destroyed by new taxes on business, income, property, and payrolls - and once the carbon tax takes effect, nearly everything else. New regulations, a huge increase in the minimum wage, political lawsuits against power producers, and other measures have greatly damaged the Alberta economic climate. The 2019 election is a critical moment for Alberta, and Jason is running to unite Albertans to get the province back on the right track and restore the Alberta Advantage."
The Economic Club of Canada:
Each year, more than 100 key policy makers and business leaders seek out the Economic Club of Canada's platform to deliver major keynote addresses. Audience members are drawn from the most senior levels of Canadian business, health care and government.
