MLA holiday ‘unacceptable,’ says former Wildrose candidate

Chris Clegg
For the Lakeside Leader

A long-time Conservative who quit the United Conservative Party (UCP) party executive late last year says Lesser Slave Lake MLA Pat Rehn and the party cannot recover from the recent controversy.
“No!” Darryl Boisson, of High Prairie, emphatically repl
ied to the question Jan. 9.

He adds the UCP’s only hope is a leadership review.

He says Kenney is not a leader, although he (Boisson) first thought he was built in the Ralph Klein mode.

“We brought in Kenney, he talked like Klein,” says Boisson.

As for Rehn’s holiday to Mexico?

“Absolutely unacceptable.”

His performance as MLA?

“Every MLA should read the Magna Carta … be the voice of your constituency.”

Boisson adds you first represent your constituency, something Rehn has failed to do according to many local municipal governments.
“Kenney was supposed to bring in [MLA] recall,” says Boisson.
However, Albertans are still waiting.

Darryl Boisson ran for Lesser Slave Lake MLA in the 2012 and 2015 elections, as a member of the Wildrose Party, finishing second both times.
