Spring session of the Alberta legislature wraps up

BY THE CANADIAN PRESS, May 27, 2022 2:08 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Alberta's legislature has wrapped up a tumultuous spring sitting, which may be followed by a new premier when politicians return to the house this fall.

Government House Leader Jason Nixon says the United Conservative government delivered on a range of issues,.There was more money for health care, a cut to the province's portion of gasoline taxes, and a balanced budget for the first time in years.

The Opposition N-D-P says the sitting will be remembered for the government failing to offer substantive relief on sharply rising energy and food costs.

The sitting was overshadowed last week by the resignation of Premier Jason Kenney after he received 51 per cent support in a party leadership review. Kenney says he'll leave once a new leader is chosen.
