Watch: Notley calls on Kenney to release blue-ribbon panel report

“There is no good reason to delay the release of that report,” said Opposition leader Rachel Notley at a Tuesday news conference. “Albertans deserve to see it.”

Notley is calling on the province to publicly release a much-anticipated report on Alberta’s finances when it’s presented to government this week.

The panel of experts, headed by former Saskatchewan finance minister Janice MacKinnon, was tasked with reviewing Alberta’s finances ahead of a fall budget.

Last week, Premier Jason Kenney said the report will show that the fiscal situation of the province is worse than outlined by the NDP.

While the panel’s report is due Thursday, the province has said it will be released publicly in September after review.
