Alberta UCP government terminates election commissioner’s contract amid probe into UCP leadership race
It is concerning that this is at least the second time in Alberta that efforts were made to restrict or end election investigations and limit enforcement of accountability for politicians, their campaigns, staff and donors.
Is it really about saving money for the position and will the Chief Electoral Officer really have the leeway to re-hire the commissioner? If so why not just wait until the investigations are completed?
