As 2016 comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the many things our government accomplished this year.

We know many hardworking Albertans, families and businesses are facing serious challenges due to the collapse of global oil prices. While there will be challenges ahead, I remain hopeful: Alberta is home to one of the youngest, best educated and most diverse populations...
