Alberta PC President McCormick Welcomes Redford Resignation

The president of PC Alberta, Jim McCormick, recently seconded former Premier Alison Redford’s claim that her resignation as MLA for Calgary-Elbow was due to her own negligence and alleged that she paid a personal and political price for her mistakes. In an official statement issued by the president of the provincial Tories on Wednesday morning, the PC party was further distanced from Alison Redford and all the allegations linked to her short-lived tenure as premier.

In his statement, McCormick mentioned that “the Progressive Conservative Association of Alberta is more than one person,” adding that “the PCAA and indeed, all three leadership candidates, have made their positions very clear, behavior such as (Redford’s) cannot and will not be tolerated.” In addition to that, McCormick revealed that Redford’s resignation as MLA for Calgary-Elbow was received with mixed feelings by the members of the Progressive Conservative Association of Alberta.

Speaking about Redford, McCormick acknowledged that “her Premiership started off with such promise,” adding that “she showed this early in her tenure as Alberta’s economy continued to be the envy of Canada and a force on the world stage.” However, McCormick elucidated that “unfortunately, it was her own personal choices that led to her demise.” Additionally, McCormick confessed that taxpayer dollars were not treated with the dignity and respect they deserve. He concluded that the party appreciates the former premier’s decision to take responsibility for her actions.
