EDMONTON – Another Alberta Progressive Conservative caucus member has returned to the fold.

Calgary-Varsity MLA Donna Kennedy-Glans confirmed on Facebook that she has been accepted back into the PC caucus.

Kennedy-Glans says she looks forward to working to rebuild government trust with Albertans.

She left caucus under former premier Alison Redford, saying she could no longer be party to the culture of entitlement.

Calgary MLA Len Webber also crossed the floor, saying he could no longer work with Redford, and is now seeking a federal seat.

Fort McMurray MLA Mike Allen was turfed from caucus after being caught in a prostitution sting in Minnesota, but has since been allowed back in.

Government Whip and Caucus Chair, George VanderBurg, confirmed Kennedy-Glans was welcomed back to Government Caucus on Wednesday.

“Ms. Kennedy-Glans put forward a request to return to our caucus and I was happy to bring that request forward to government MLAs at today’s meeting. Donna has stayed very active representing her constituents over summer and will be a great asset to have back in our caucus.”

Premier Jim Prentice also welcomed her back.

“I’m looking forward to Ms. Kennedy-Glans being a part of our caucus. Her intellect and impressive resume will be of great value to our team.”
