OPINION/Not so united conservatives: Kenney being punished politically for doing the right thing

The mutineers haven’t tried to seize control of the boat or toss the captain overboard but you have to wonder if they’re getting ready to abandon ship.

Alberta’s United Conservative government caucus is not a happy crew these days.

In fact, on Wednesday, more than a dozen of them took a step unprecedented in Alberta’s political history by joining together to publicly slam their own government.

They didn’t mention Premier Jason Kenney by name but he’s the one who announced the reintroduction of tougher COVID-related restrictions.
