Yesterday, Alberta premier Rachel Notley named her former chief of staff, Brian Topp, as one of "three special envoys to work with the energy industry to find solutions to close the oil-price differential that is costing Canada more than $80 million a day."
As Ezra Levant noted when Topp became Notley's chief of staff back in 2015, Topp is no friend of the province's oil industry:
Levant calls Topp "a bit of an NDP mercenary." Most recently, he ran Adrian Dix's failed "no pipelines" campaign in BC. That's in line with his personal philosophy, as you'll see from this video.
Is an anti-oil, anti-Alberta radical really the best choice for Notley's chief of staff?
