Danielle Smith, who was elected leader of the United Conservative Party just six weeks ago, became the MLA of Brooks-Medicine Hat in a byelection after one-term MLA Michaela Frey stepped down.

In her victory speech Tuesday night, Smith promised to revamp healthcare to cut middle managers and hire more frontline workers and said she would square off with the federal government on inflation and affordability. 

Smith has gotten right to work, holding Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to account, firing off a letter demanding an end to his attacks on the oil and gas sector, which make life more expensive for everyday Canadians.

Lockdown Amnesty

Lockdowns are over in Canada, but “offences” allegedly committed during those lockdowns are still being prosecuted to this day — against truckers, against businesspeople, against churches, against Pastor Artur Pawlowski, and so many more.
