Alberta Liberals honour International Holocaust Remembrance Day

Alberta Liberal Leader David Khan and MLA David Swann issue the following statement on International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Khan stated, “We honour millions of victims of Nazi Germany’s genocidal actions on International Holocaust Remembrance Day. My thoughts are with the victims and their families who still struggle with the aftermath of this horrific event.

“In commemoration of this day the United Nations stated, “The Holocaust was a turning point in history, which prompted the world to say ‘never again.’”

Swann stated, “We must stand up against hateful ideology and violence against those who are different. We must strive to prevent history from repeating itself. We must never forget this tragedy.”

Alberta Liberals react to $2 billion bitumen upgrading facility proposal “letter of intent”

Alberta Liberal Leader David Khan issues the following release on the announcement today of a “letter of intent” for a proposed $2 billion bitumen upgrading facility.

Khan stated, “Alberta taxpayers should not have to pay to create jobs for themselves and boost our economy. Every single Albertan is now on the hook for $110 per person with the $440 million loan guarantee by the NDP Government for this project. Even worse, the project needs additional private sector financing which has still not been secured by the operating company. The company admits the project won’t be finally approved until the end of 2019 or early 2020 - if at all. The benefits of this project are entirely speculative today.”

Khan added, “If the NDP Government has an extra $440 million to spend, then Alberta Liberals have some suggestions. We would use it to pay down the massive provincial deficit, end overcrowded classrooms or invest in more mental health supports. That will help all Albertans today. We can’t afford to wait for a year or more for a project that may never get off the ground.
