1. 2021-22 Benga Mines application to operate an open pit mines was REJECTED 2X over concerns of the massive environmental damage they’d cause

It was so bad that UCP Enviro Minister, Sonya Savage, put a moratorium on future applications

However…that was under Kenney

Danielle Smith broke a MAJOR promise announcing her intent to steal from the CPP and illegally create an APP.

This is part of her “Free Alberta Strategy”; a document focused on ushering in Alberta separation.

Let’s look at what her dangerous plan entails:

#Abpoli Image 1. The Alberta Sovereignty Act

This act attempted to illegally circumvent the Canadian Constitution by claiming Danielle had more power than the federal gov’t on taxation, pipeline approvals and environmental laws.

Danielle was forced to water this her original act. Image
