Chagnon-Greyeyes has expressed support for further exploration of shift to green energy while also acknowledging the importance of bitumen-processing jobs in Alberta.

“I drive a automotive … I do know we want oil at this time limit,” Chagnon-Greyeyes told The Canadian Press. “I’m saying it might probably be done in a greater way, a better way, a more environmentally conscious way that respects Indigenous communities.”

No Green Party member in Alberta has ever been elected to office in provincial or federal politics.
