Regional Update from MLA Jackie Homeniuk

I want to congratulate the Romanian Orthodox Parish of Boian and the Community on their 125th Anniversary of the Pioneers. The community of Boian, located outside of Two Hills, was settled in 1898 by a group of Romanian Pioneers from Bukovina. I am delighted to share a few words on their celebration this coming Sunday, July 30th.

Also, on July 30th, the Fort Saskatchewan Alliance Church is hosting a Sunday in the Sun community event from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. in Legacy Park. Get your family together, pack a picnic, and enjoy the bouncy house, games, activities, and performances from the community’s youth.

It has come to my attention that some constituents enrolled in the Alberta Seniors Benefit program have not received their cheques in the mail. This program provides low-income Seniors with monthly financial assistance to cover living expenses. To see if you are eligible, to apply, or to confirm your personal information to ensure you can receive your cheques, please call the Alberta Supports Contact Centre at 1.877.644.9992 or go online to alberta.ca/alberta-seniors-benefit.aspx. If you have stopped receiving your cheques or have moved to a new location, please call 1.877.644.9992 and confirm your mailing address.

Recently the federal Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Steven Guilbeault, stated the federal government’s intention to impose a net-zero electricity mandate on all provinces for 2035. As your representative, I want to assure you the government is not standing with this claim. Premier Danielle Smith has vocalized her disagreement with the federal government’s net-zero agenda, quoting such mandates will “create investor uncertainty and are extremely harmful to the Alberta and Canadian economies. Alberta will not recognize any federally imposed emission-reduction targets for our energy and electricity sector under any circumstances unless such targets are first consented to by the Government of Alberta.”

Our government is working hard to expand Alberta’s economic capacity, maintaining our oil and gas sector while branching into new industries. The recent creation of the Cabinet Policy Committee for Economic Diversification will help us work towards this goal. This committee will work to attract new investment opportunities in existing and underexplored sectors, cultivating a more robust and stable economy that will benefit Albertans.
