Premier Jim Prentice issued the following statement following the announcement that Dr. Raj Sherman has stepped down as Liberal leader:
“As Liberal leader, Raj has been a committed representative of his party members.
“He is an advocate for health care and a champion for improving quality of life for all Albertans.
“I expect that, as he moves to another role, his passion for public service and his support for Edmonton-Meadowlark will remain strong.
“I wish Raj all the best in whatever his future holds, and thank him for his leadership and service.”
