Kenney says caucus dissent over COVID-19 OK, but breaking health rules means expulsion
Alberta Premier Jason Kenney is drawing a line in the sand for 18 of his backbenchers who are openly criticizing public health restrictions meant to face down COVID-19.
Kenney says dissent is part of a democracy, but adds he has warned United Conservative legislature members that flouting the rules means disciplinary action that includes getting kicked out of caucus.
“I made it very clear to my caucus this morning that while we accept a diversity of opinions and I totally respect the obligation of members to represent their constituents ? the government caucus could not tolerate any member counselling people to engage in civil disobedience or to break public-health measures,” Kenney said Thursday.
“I think that’s well understood by our team.”
Asked if he would remove violators from caucus, Kenney had a one-word reply: “Yes.”
Almost half of the party’s 40 backbenchers are publicly condemning a return to stricter health restrictions Kenny announced this week. They want eased rules or, if not, targeting them in areas with high COVID-19 case rates.
