Albertans react: Should Jason Kenney withdraw from Canada Pension Plan?


Jason Kenney is faced with a difficult task. In the aftermath of the federal election, Albertans have been left looking for answers. The question of secession has been weighing on the provinces' mind and Kenney, a staunch federalist, needs to figure out a way to soothe that anger.

When it comes to distancing the province from the feds, Kenny has a few options at his disposal. One that he's mentioned is to withdraw from the Canadian pension plan.

With billions of Alberta dollars being held hostage by the feds, he can simply exercise the province's authority to withdraw that amount and manage it within the province. Kenny says that that increase in capital would open up investment opportunities, and give Alberta significant control over a program currently facing a crisis due to Canada's aging population.
