panel this year: the Fair Deal Panel.
Panel members include former Reform Par-
ty leader Preston Manning, former Progressive
Conservative MLA Donna Kennedy-Glans, for-
mer Alberta Innovates CEO Stephen Lougheed,
Oryssia Lennie, former Alberta Regional Chief
of the Assembly of First Nations Jason Good-

“I want to thank Jason Kenney for moving to

there still needs to be action on provincial im-
