If the new bill is passed, elected MLAs can be recalled, but the process is kind of convoluted.
A poll released last week found the Alberta NDP once again leading in support against the UCP. This is the 6th one since November.
Three of them were nearly twice the allowable amount.
A poll last month found that nearly half of respondents intending on voting UCP in the next election want Jason Kenney to kick 6 MLAs out of the UCP caucus for vacationing during travel restrictions.
The UCP have the lowest satisfaction rate in the country, and over 30 points below the national average.
First time since the election they’re projected to win, with forecasts of sweeping Edmonton, taking 70% of Calgary, and gaining 7 seats elsewhere.
This is the third poll in a row where Alberta’s UCP don’t lead in support.
Nearly half of decided voters would vote for NDP right now, compared to only 2 in 5 for UCP. The first time since the election the NDP are ahead.
The UCP are spending over $6 million on 51 “sunshine list” staffers, compared to the NDP, who spent $3 million on 24.
