Wildrose leader Brian Jean is in hot water after he joked about beating Premier Rachel Notley.
The caucus is in Fort McMurray this week for meetings, and Jean made the comment during a town hall Tuesday
The Fort McMurray Today newspaper reports, in response to a complaint about the quality of seniors’ care and housing in the city Jean said “I’ve been beating this drum for 10, 11 years and I will continue to beat it I promise. But it’s against the law to beat Rachel Notley.”
Jean would later apologize, saying Notley does care about seniors’ housing in the city and has cooperated with him on the file.
A Wildrose spokesperson says Jean has reached out to the Premier directly to apologize.
