CALGARY- It appears that another politician is throwing their hat into the ring, in the race to become Alberta’s next premier.
Sources tell Global News that Calgary MLA Ric McIver plans to announce his intention to run in the PC leadership race on Wednesday. He has also resigned from his posting as Minister of Infrastructure.
McIver served on Calgary’s city council, before entering provincial politics.
A news release sent to media on Tuesday afternoon said in part: “former Minister of both Alberta Infrastructure and Alberta Transportation will discuss his common sense new thinking for our province’s future.”
