OTTAWA — Quebec’s new Parti Québécois government could work collaboratively with Alberta to decentralize some powers from Ottawa, Alberta’s Wildrose leader Danielle Smith said Sunday.
There’s a lot of “common cause” between Alberta and Quebec in terms of the kind of transference of power the provinces want to see, and in terms of wanting the federal government to back out of areas of provincial jurisdiction, Smith told CTV’s Question Period.
“I’m hoping that Alberta and Quebec can work collaboratively with a Prime Minister who I think, quite frankly, shares a vision of a more decentralized country,” Smith said.
“This could, in some ways, be very positive. Not only for Quebec but also for Alberta.”
