EDMONTON – Alison Redford plans to be back at the Alberta legislature this spring when her image is immortalized on the walls of the building she once presided over as premier.

Premier Rachel Notley’s office says Redford has confirmed she would like to attend the ceremony to unveil her premier’s portrait.

Redford is now working out a day for the unveiling ceremony, but Notley’s office says the plan is to have it this spring.

The portrait of Redford and her successor Dave Hancock are complete and sitting in storage awaiting their unveiling ceremonies.

Redford quit as premier in March 2014, one step ahead of a caucus revolt underpinned by a scandal over her lavish spending and travel expenses.

Redford now works with the Conference Board of Canada on ways to harmonize energy development with environmental conservation.
