Request for Legislation to Prohibit De-banking

Greetings Premier Danielle Smith, Deputy Premier Mike Ellis, and Alberta Ministers: Dale Nally (Service Alberta and Red Tape Reduction), Matt Jones (Jobs, Economy and Trade), Mickey Amery (Justice), Jason Nixon (Seniors, Community and Social Services)

As de-banking has become a growing trend to censor and punish free speech, expression, and opinion, will the Alberta government be a leader and first in Canada to enact protective legislation as was done in April 2024 in Tennessee, USA? Here is the background:

● Tennessee Bill Would Prohibit Financial De-Banking for Political, Religious Beliefs Johnson and Zachary sponsored bills, “HB 2100 and SB 2148, that were signed into law prohibiting banks, insurers and other financial institutions from “denying or canceling services to a person, or otherwise discriminating against a person, based upon the use of a social credit score or other factors.”
