Critics on both sides of the aisle renew calls for recall legislation

Article Link:

As anger over travel abroad by senior officials with the United Conservative government reaches a boiling point, critics from both ends of the political spectrum are calling on the Alberta government to pass long-promised recall legislation. The legislation, promised by the UCP and now-Premier Jason Kenney during their 2019 campaign, was pitched as similar to existing legislation in British Columbia, which allows constituents to remove their MLA and force a byelection if 40 per cent of eligible voters sign a recall petition. During the campaign, Kenney said a provision for recall would be an “instrument of accountability” if elected officials “totally violate the trust of voters.”
