The west block, dec. 4, 2022 | alberta premier may amend sovereignty act and ukraine puts up a fight

Global News published this video item, entitled “The West Block, Dec. 4, 2022 | Alberta premier may amend Sovereignty Act and Ukraine puts up a fight” – below is their description.

Alberta Premier Danielle Smith followed through on a campaign promise by introducing the Alberta Sovereignty Within a United Canada Act last week.

The Alberta Sovereignty Within a United Canada Act has received mixed reactions. Constitutional experts say the proposed legislation is undemocratic as it grants sweeping powers to the provincial cabinet, while critics say it’s not necessary in the first place.

‘The West Block’ host Mercedes Stephenson speaks with Premier Smith about her reasoning behind the act and the message she’s sending to Ottawa.

And Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has expressed strong interest in joining NATO and the European Union, but for now his main priority is putting an end to Russia’s invasion. While some say negotiations could put an end to the war, others argue Russian President Vladimir Putin will only respond to force. ‘The West Block’ host Mercedes Stephenson sat down with former Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko at the Halifax International Security Forum to talk about what Canada can do to help, and what could get this conflict to end.
