Wildrose’s Brian Jean ‘prepared to step down’ and run for a merged Alberta conservative party

Wildrose Leader Brian Jean said he’s received a clear message from Albertans that conservatives in the province should “pursue unity.”

“When I issued my challenge for conservatives to come together shortly after the last election, I said that we would need to put egos aside for the greater good—that personal self-interest must never come before Alberta,” Jean said in a video released Thursday afternoon.
