Albertans woke up Tuesday to an announcement that Kenney’s government was injecting $1.5 billion into the controversial Keystone XL project, in the hopes of using it to shuttle oil to the southern United States by 2023.
But with oil prices dropping, a global price war and questions about future demand has some asking, is it a losing bet?

While the original overall price forecast — prices to rise between two and four per cent, especially vegetables and bakery — remains, researcher Sylvain Charlebois says the factors in the rise have changed, and may precede an even more difficult 2021 for consumers.
“Things are going to catch up to grocers, to processors. We are expecting salaries to go up and as a result prices will be under a lot of pressure.”
