Kenney says Alberta has strong legal argument if Keystone project killed in U.S.

Published on

CALGARY — Premier Jason Kenney says Alberta has a strong legal basis for seeking damages if the Keystone XL pipeline expansion is killed.

Documents seen by The Canadian Press show Joe Biden plans to scrap the project on his first day this week as United States president.

Alberta invested $1.5 billion in the expansion last year.

Kenney says he’s deeply concerned over Biden’s intention and adds the U.S. owes Canada the respect of sitting down to discuss the issue.

The premier says Alberta is getting legal advice in both Canada and the U.S. about seeking compensation if the project is scrapped.

He says James Rajotte, a former Alberta member of Parliament, is working for the province to lobby Washington, and construction unions that supported Biden but favour the project are reaching out to his transition team.

Running out of doses: Alberta pauses appointments for first dose of COVID-19 vaccine

Published on

EDMONTON — Alberta Premier Jason Kenney says the province is pausing appointments for people to get their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

He says the province will run out of supply for first doses by the end of today or early tomorrow.

Pfizer-BioNTech indicated last week that it’s cutting back on promised deliveries of its vaccine over the next four weeks as it works to expand production.

Kenney says no new appointments for first doses are being accepted and some appointments already booked will be rescheduled.

He says second doses have been saved for those who have appointments for those shots.

So far, vaccines have been administered to about 90,000 health-care workers as well as to staff and residents in continuing-care homes in Alberta.
