Premier Jason Kenney will hold a news conference one day after news of Alberta Municipal Affairs Minister Tracy Allard’s Hawaii vacation was revealed.
Kenney is set to speak at 12:30 MT.
Allard’s press secretary, Justin Marshall, did not respond to repeated requests for clarification on whether she had been out of the country this month.
Marshall would only say that the minister is now home in Grande Prairie, “mostly relaxing but with some work, too.”
CBC News has confirmed with sources that the United Conservative Party MLA, who was appointed to the senior cabinet position in August, was in Hawaii this month on a family vacation.
More to come.
