Drew Barnes is an independent MLA in Cypress-Medicine Hat. He was booted from the UCP caucus about a year and a half ago. Barnes says with the new leadership under Premier Danielle Smith he would be open to returning to caucus if they share his values of helping to make life more affordable for Albertans. He explains in this interview with BCN’s Hal Roberts.
