“I am pleased to confirm that I have received commissioner Steve Allan’s final public inquiry report. I thank Mr. Allan for his hard work on this important file and look forward to reviewing the report in detail. As stated in the inquiry’s terms of reference, the government will publicly release this report within the next 90 days.

“Our government was elected on a commitment to launch a public inquiry into any possible sources of foreign funds behind the anti-Alberta energy campaign. This report represents a significant milestone.

“Albertans believe in democracy, and we expect that decisions about our economy and the development of our natural resources must rest with Albertans and not well-funded foreign special interest groups.

“Alberta’s government continues to do everything in its power to stand up for our energy sector, which will take a leading role in the province’s – and Canada’s – strong post-pandemic economic recovery.”
