In epic flip-flop, Jason Kenney disciplines globe-trotting MLAs and sacks chief of staff

After a weekend of unprecedented denunciation from all points of the political compass, including many of his own loyal supporters, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney yesterday folded and accepted resignations from two cabinet members and a top aide, while demoting four backbench MLAs for ignoring repeated pleas by health officials not to travel during the pandemic.

Some called it the Monday Morning Massacre, because it sounded as if there was precious little voluntary about yesterday's sudden changes, although the discipline meted out was mostly too mild for such a moniker.
