OPINION | Kenney’s overly heated criticism of new federal throne speech undermines his message

It’s probably fair to say Premier Jason Kenney has a love-hate relationship with the new federal speech from the throne — meaning, he doesn’t just hate it, he loves to hate it.

For Kenney, the Liberal government’s throne speech is too good a target to ignore with its talk of a carbon-neutral future, a “feminist, intersectional response to the pandemic,” retrofitting homes, and strengthening protection of the French language in Canada.
