Alberta and Quebec premiers duke it out over equalization and pipelines 

Quebec Premier François Legault and Alberta Premier Jason Kenney have been in a verbal clash over the former’s belief Quebec is entitled to equalization and the latter’s belief that Quebec doesn’t deserve it if it continues to stifle Alberta’s oil and gas industry by opposing pipelines.

Besides supposed historic disparages, it appears the dispute was kicked off by a tweet from Alberta’s premier where he said that “my stance on equalization is that it treats Alberta unfairly,” as well as taking aim at Quebec for not developing its natural resources through processes such as fracking. Additionally, Kenney criticized what he calls “anti-Alberta laws,” specifically Bill C-69 which added additional regulations on oil and gas and was characterized as being a “pipeline killer.”
