MORE TALK, NO ACTION ON HYDROGEN: STATEMENT FROM IRFAN SABIR
CALGARY – The following statement can be attributed to Alberta NDP Energy Critic Irfan Sabir:
“Today’s announcement marks yet another Jason Kenney-backed plan to make a plan. Let’s also not forget that it was Jason Kenney who cut $1.5 billion from the Petrochemical Diversification Plan put forward by Rachel Notley — that plan was projected to created 70,000 direct jobs and $75 billion in private sector investment. There is a real potential for hydrogen in Alberta and it will be a key piece of the economic strategy being developed by the NDP.
"This Premier, however, doesn’t take action, he stands at podiums in fields and talks a big game about pretending to support industry as thousands of jobs are lost every week under his watch. The one concrete action this Premier has taken is to hand over more than $4.7 billion to big corporations and that money was used to prop up shareholders and investment in other jurisdictions. This Premier has no idea how to get Albertans back to work or how to secure our economic future.”
