Smith’s first priority during the fourth session of the 30th legislature will be to introduce the long-awaited act of Alberta sovereignty in a united Canada. It is intended to act as a “constitutional shield,” allowing the province to refuse to enforce federal laws or policies.

The other government objective should be affordability. The session will take place a week after Smith announced in a live televised address a $2.4 billion inflation relief package.

It includes new direct payments of $600 over six months for each senior and child under 18 in households with an annual income of less than $180,000. These same cash payments will be made to those who receive payments from Alberta Income for the Severely Handicapped (AISH) and Persons with Developmental Disabilities (PDD).
