Global News will carry the press conference live on this page at 2 p.m. ET
Alberta Premier Jason Kenney is set to hold a news conference today as controversy swirls around his government’s municipal affairs minister.
The opposition NDP is calling for the resignation of Tracy Allard amid reports she took a vacation to Hawaii despite public health recommendations urging people to stay home to stop the spread of COVID-19.
CBC News has reported that Allard was abroad this month on a family vacation and returned home on Wednesday.
Allard’s press secretary and a spokeswoman for Kenney did not respond to phone calls or emails requesting comment.
But Kenney is scheduled to address the media at 2 p.m. ET today.
The NDP says the United Conservative government should disclose how many of its caucus members have left the country since the Alberta legislature rose this month.
