United Conservative Party faces difficult weekend

The Homestretch

It has been a challenging weekend for the United Conservative Party. Todd Beasley was running for the Brooks-Medicine Hat UCP nomination. But he was removed from the ballot after making what the party calls "insensitive, inappropriate comments" on Facebook. On Saturday, Calgary MLA Prab Gill resigned from the UCP caucus following an investigation into allegations of ballot stuffing levelled at a constituency meeting last month. To talk about the recruitment process for political parties, host Doug Dirks reached Duane Bratt. He is a political scientist with Mount Royal University.
