by Morinville News Staff

Premier Rachel Notley will meet with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Edmonton Feb. 3 to discuss the economy and what can be done to manage the province’s current economic challenges.

In addition to discussing jobs and the economy, the two plan to talk about market access for Alberta’s energy products and climate change.

“We are always looking for solutions to the economic challenges Alberta is facing,” Premier Notley said in a media release Thursday. “Alberta is a resilient province with an incredible entrepreneurial spirit, and I’m pleased to have the opportunity to sit down with the Prime Minister to discuss how our two levels of government can work together to support that resiliency and work through this downturn. Working respectfully and constructively with the federal government and other provinces will allow us to move forward on issues that are important to Alberta’s economy, and the economy of Canada.”

Prime Minister Trudeau will make Edmonton and Calgary stops during his upcoming visit.
