A member of the Alberta legislature has been suspended from his party over a comment he made about Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne.
When one of his supporters posted an item on Facebook calling Wynne, who is openly gay, “Mr, Wynne,” Wildrose Party finance critic Derek Fildebrandt said he was proud to have the person who made the comment as a constituent.
He later apologized, saying he misread the item, but Wikdrose Party leader Brian Jean immediately suspended him.
