EDMONTON, AB – The province is suing the federal government.

The federal court has granted a request from the government of Alberta that allows them to become involved in all issues raised in court regarding the Canadian government’s use of the emergency law

Prime Minister Jason Kenney adds that Ottawa’s use of the action could set a “dangerous precedent”.

“Their decision to invoke the law violated the constitutionally guaranteed rights of Albertans and all Canadians. It is our duty to do everything we can to protect the liberties and liberties of Albertans from these kinds of violations,” said Kenney. “No government should have the power to seize any person’s property or withhold access to their assets without due process of law.”
