Kenney’s Leadership Review and Political Issues in Alberta

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney says he’s been interviewed by R-C-M-P as part of an investigation into potential criminal identity fraud in the United Conservative Party leadership contest that elected him five years ago. Police are looking into possible voter identity theft in the 2017 campaign and have interviewed multiple Kenney cabinet ministers. In a recent interview with Western Standard’s Editor, Dave Naylor, Jeannette Rocher asked how he thought this might factor into Kenney’s upcoming leadership contest.
They also discuss what could be in store for the United Conservative Party.
