Brian Jean apologized for social media post about rival UCP candidate

BY The Canadian Press, Nov 15, 2021 11:26 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Former Wildrose Party leader Brian Jean has apologized for a social media post about a rival for the United Conservative Party

nomination in an Alberta byelection.

In a post that has since been amended, Jean said that Premier Jason Kenney's people were backing a candidate that Jean described as ``a Nigerian economist.''

Joshua Gogo accused Jean of trying to make the nomination contest in Fort McMurry about his ethnicity and of trying to undermine his

credibility by implying he is not Albertan.

Jean says a campaign volunteer posted what he says was an inappropriate comment and he called Gogo to give a ``total and unreserved apology.
