Mr. Jean Heads Back To Edmonton



Brian Jean the one-time Leader of the Official Opposition, and Leader of the now-folded Wildrose Party of Alberta, is heading back to Edmonton after winning the by-election in the riding Fort McMurray Lac La Biche.


Jean took over 63 percent of the votes, while the Alberta NDP took only 18 percent of the vote.


Jean said in his victory speech that he was excited to be the new MLA, " This was not a squeaker, I've got a clear mandate from the people."


The MLA-elect didn't miss a beat about his reasoning for coming back to elected politics, “Jason (Kenney), I hope you see what’s coming and I hope you do the right thing." Jean has been rallying support to oust Jason Kenney, as leader of the United Conservative Party, at next month's leadership review in Red Deer.
