Jason Kenney, Leadership Candidate for the Alberta Progressive Conservative Party to Address Economic Club

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.

Speech abstract:

"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."
