I think this goes without saying, but it's important...
No government should have the power Danielle Smith is giving herself with the Sovereignty Act. 🧵

Carson Jerema: Surprise, Danielle Smith's sovereignty act is very likely constitutional
Provinces are not obliged to enforce federal laws
Canada's self-appointed freedom fighters sure are awfully quiet about what Danielle Smith is trying to do to democracy and the rule of law in Alberta.
Gee, I wonder why? #cdnpoli #ableg https://t.co/YoSSLla75x
I don’t want to hear about “government overreach” from Conservatives when Doug Ford used the notwithstanding clause twice and Danielle Smith wants to rule Alberta unilaterally.
Calgary mayor Jyoti Gondek says she wishes more thought would've went into Danielle Smith's first move as premier. https://t.co/yU3VFcXxUt
Rachel Notley will be the leader of Alberta in a few short months with all the power Danielle Smith is giving her. This should be fun.
I’ve spent some time reflecting on the United Conservative Government’s proposed Bill 1 - Alberta Sovereignty within a United Canada Act.
Let’s call it how it is: Premier Danielle Smith’s UCP want nothing more than a fight with Ottawa.
P. Lougheed actually cared about Alberta & Canada. He wasn’t looking for a fight for the sake of having a fight, even when it’s ridiculous, to impress his political base.
Danielle Smith stokes anger, validates misinformation and harms Alberta to appease her base.

Chiefs from both Treaty 6 and Treaty 8 are condemning the proposed Sovereignty Act legislation introduced by Danielle Smith in the Alberta legislature saying it doesn’t honour the original intent of the treaties.
Seems to me someone contacted the UofC School of Public Policy to get them to bury Danielle Smith's stand-alone paper. If you want the original paper it's available on the internet archive:

We have a 155 years of Canadian constitutional order. Danielle Smith thinks she's found a cheat code to declare a federal law invalid, based on her personal whim alone. We already have a legitimate way to determine constitutionality, it's telling that she doesn't want to use it.
Danielle Smith may not be an actual Alberta separatist. But she sounds like one, and panders to them.
And that makes investors flee. And doctors. And nurses. And teachers. And a lot of jobs Alberta needs.

Danielle Smith is not afraid of seperation but her goal is to renegotiate Canadas constitution to provide for greater provincial autonomy.
She should be supported by all Canadians.
Nearly every problem we have, including deteriorating hc system,is due to a obsolete constitution
Dear Albertans this is the person who's in charge of your overall health and well-being. In 2003 Danielle Smith downplayed the harm of smoking up to half a pack of cigarettes per day and claimed smoking can actually “reduce the risk of disease.” https://t.co/MQxPsgiSa9
Smith, Higgs, what next? Ford?
This is a dangerous direction that CONservatives will take Canada...piece by piece. Stand up in 2023 Alberta and make all of Canada heard.
While danielle smith & #UCP try to distract you with her effing #SovereigntyAct the fact is the death rate from COVID in Alberta is up 31% in 2022 over 2021. People were dying at a rate of 31.9/100,000 in 2021 in 2022 that rate is 41.7/100,000
If you worried about Trudeau using the Emergencies Act, you might want to have a gander at Smith's Sovereignty Act.

We know her. We've given her many chances.
Every idea Danielle Smith has ever had has been bad. https://t.co/fmWCyzI1LB
Danielle Smith and Justin Trudeau both turned to extraordinary measures. Here’s the difference https://t.co/GRgYSMcnx0
via @torontostar Recent piece by me.
More horrible stuff from the “Trudeau-Singh Alliance.” Good thing we have Danielle Smith to protect us from such atrocities. 🙄 https://t.co/WNQRslme2K
Journalism is a pillar of democracy. When you put this information next to the rise of misinformation on social media and the introduction of Danielle Smith’s patently undemocratic Sovereignty Act, it’s hard not to worry about the future of our province. #AbLeg #abpoli #cdnpoli https://t.co/cZQxfilW0L
Of course, the Danielle Smith gong show illustrates magnificently why a true Tory cannot possibly be part of today's "conservatism". The "provincial rights" fanaticism that she embodies in an extreme way but that animates the right wing generally is anathema to Toryism...
