Wildrose exec: Planned defection of MLAs ‘a betrayal’

The Wildrose Party isn’t finished, says one of their executives who called an apparent imminent mass defection to the Tories “a betrayal.”

Jeff Callaway said the party will fight on and choose an interim leader after he said its current head, Danielle Smith, is set to abandon the Wildrose for the governing PCs.

“It’s unfortunate judgement on her part, now we’ll be searching for a new leader,” said Callaway, the party’s vice-president of fundraising.
