October 10, 2021:  Interview with Lee Harding of the Epoch Times on the upcoming Alberta referendum: Vote in Alberta’s Upcoming Equalization Referendum Could Be Impacted by Other Factors, Observers Say

The Fair Deal Panel commissioned by Kenney said Alberta made a net contribution of nearly $240 billion to the rest of Canada between 2007 and 2018, while net payments since 1961 amounted to $661 billion. Panellists heard “an overwhelmingly negative reaction to equalization” and recommended the referendum to spur Ottawa and the provinces to discuss changes.

Marco Navarro-Génie, president and CEO of the Haultain Research Institute, told The Epoch Times that it’s important for Albertans to show “solidarity with the spirit of what is being tried here.” 

October 4, 2021:  Our President, Marco Navarro-Génie, gives his analysis of the political challenges before Alberta premier’s and his handling of the COVID-19 crisis to the Epoch Times Isaac Teo: Kenney facing challenges as pressure mounts from different sides.

Marco Navarro-Génie, president of the Haultain Research Institute, says all jurisdictions, including the federal government and the provinces and municipalities, should have allowed emergency experts to handle the pandemic response in the first place, instead of medical experts, as emergency experts are the ones trained and prepared for crises and best able to carry out the respective jurisdiction’s emergency plan covering a wide range of issues.
“Doctors are trained to doctor. They don’t know much about economy, they don’t know much about trade. They don’t know much about supply lines and don’t know much about transportation. They don’t know much about the restaurant industry, they don’t know much about anything else, even the good ones,” he said.
“This became such a narrowly focused medical issue that they lost sight of everything else.”
