Statement from MLA Jansen on MLA Prab Gill and the UCP Caucus
CALGARY - NDP MLA Sandra Jansen made the following statement today:
Yet another UCP MLA left caucus in disgrace today. The allegations of ballot-stuffing by Prab Gill are just the latest example of the moral bankruptcy in Jason Kenney's party.
It's clear that the creation of the UCP has amplified both the bizarre behaviour of the Wildrose and the legacy of entitlement from the PCs. Albertans decisively rejected both in 2015.
Before Prab Gill, Don MacIntyre resigned facing sexual interference charges. Before MacIntyre, Derek Fildebrandt was thrown out for misusing taxpayers' money, poaching, and lying about legal troubles. Overall, Kenney's “united” party has now shed 8 out of 31 MLAs elected by the PCs and Wildrose.
Kenney must come clean with the people of Alberta and release his party's secret report on Gill's behaviour. He must also explain to voters why he buried this report until after the two recent by-elections.
