Newly sworn-in Alberta Premier Danielle Smith has issued a warning to globalist Klaus Schwab over the “control” his organization, the World Economic Forum (WEF), has over “political leaders” around the world.
In comments about the WEF, Smith said she finds it “distasteful” when billionaires “brag” about controlling sovereign nations’ “political leaders.”
She noted that Schwab has gloated about having world leaders under his control.
The new premier was repeatedly asked to explain her views on the WEF at a press conference in Edmonton earlier this week.
The questions have emerged after she previously warned that Alberta Health Services are in “partnership with the World Economic Forum.”
“I find it distasteful when billionaires brag about how much control they have over political leaders, as the head of that organization has,” Smith told reporters following the swearing-in ceremony of her cabinet ministers.
“I think that that is offensive for people who should be directing government or the people who vote for them.”
In 2017, WEF leader Schwab boasted his organization has managed to “penetrate the cabinets” of governments around the world.
During the comments, Schwab mentioned the names of heads of governments in different countries that he said were under his control, including Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
“Yesterday, I was at a reception for Prime Minister Trudeau and I would know that half of his cabinet or even more than half are actually our young global leaders of the World Economic Forum,” he said.

Smith was asked to clarify her views on the WEF after she said in an interview on October 21 that Alberta Health Services’ (AHS) ties to the organization serve no purpose.
“I believe that Alberta Health Services is the source of a lot of problems that we’ve had,” she said during a livestream on Western Standard’s “Question Period with Premier Danielle Smith.”
“They signed some kind of partnership with the World Economic Forum right in the middle of the pandemic; we’ve got to address that.
“Why in the world do we have anything to do with the World Economic Forum? That’s got to end.”
On July 2, 2020, the AHS published an article saying that it has “caught the eye” of the WEF, which invited AHS to join its “Global Coalition for Value in Healthcare” to play a role in “shaping future health care on the international stage.”
“The coalition’s goals align with those of AHS when it comes to recognizing the rights of individuals and introducing more of a social responsibility into health care,” the article said.
Smith said during her press conference on Oct. 24 that the person at the “helm” of WEF is not a doctor, paramedic, or healthcare provider.
Alberta should be taking its health advice from healthcare expertise within the province, she added.
“I am going to continue working with front-line professionals to solve the problems that we have here,” she said.
“And the problems that we have here are related to emergency services, ambulances, our emergency rooms, as well as the inability to get surgical initiatives at our rural hospitals.
“That’s the focus that I want to have and all the expertise we need for that is right here in Alberta.”
As Slay News reported in August, the government of Canada announced it is working on a new federal “Digital Identity Program” after partnering with Schwab’s WEF to help develop a global ID system.
Canada joins the Dutch government in developing a digital ID system in partnership with the WEF.
The program seeks to create a digital proof-of-identity document for all citizens that is logged in a system used by airports, authorities, and government agencies.
Details about the development of a federal “Digital Identity Program” were revealed in the Canadian government’s “Canada’s Digital Ambition 2022” report.
“The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the need for government services to be accessible and flexible in the digital age,” the report published by the government reads.
“The next step in making services more convenient to access is a federal Digital Identity Program, integrated with pre-existing provincial platforms.
“Digital identity is the electronic equivalent of a recognized proof-of-identity document (for example, a driver’s license or passport) and confirms that ‘you are who you say you are’ in a digital context.”
For the digital ID program, Canada is partnering with the WEF.
It later emerged earlier this month that Canada’s government has funneled $105.3 million in taxpayer funds to the WEF’s digital ID program.
