He took the opportunity to talk business and express how the U.S. is Alberta's largest trading partner and that a large portion of the American economy is fuelled by Alberta's energy sector.
"We look forward to working with President-elect Biden’s transition team and future administration to ensure that this vital economic partnership continues," he said.
Alberta has a long-standing history with the U.S. in the oil trade. During the elections, there was talk of whether or not the Keystone XL pipeline would carry on or not following.
Biden has been vocal about his distaste for the Keystone XL pipeline in Alberta and has hinted at putting a stop to it if elected.
Still, Kenney also noted that both countries have to work together in other areas like protecting the "lives and livelihoods through the COVID crisis, and to return our economies to growth."
