On Sunday, I called on Premier-elect Redford to reverse her position and allow a fall session of the Alberta Legislature. Today, following the Tory caucus meeting, it was announced that the fall session was back on.
This morning, I pointed out that Ken Hughes was in a conflict of interest as Chairman of the Alberta Health Services because he accepted a position on Alison Redford’s transition team. Within hours, he announced he would step aside from AHS.
I welcome both decisions. They are evidence that the Alberta NDP’s constructive approach to opposition is already paying dividends.
