Statement on the Resignation of Bill Jarvis

CALGARY, AB (March 30, 2015) – Brian Jean released the following statement on the resignation of Bill Jarvis as Wildrose candidate for Calgary-South East:

“Earlier today I was made aware of a comment made by Bill Jarvis at last night’s Wildrose event.  The comment was disrespectful and while I accept that Mr. Jarvis did not intend to insult, I will not accept inappropriate statements that fail to show respect for all Albertans.  I have asked Mr. Jarvis to step down and he has agreed.”

Bill Jarvis further commented, “I recognize that my comments might have caused offence. That was certainly not my intent. I have apologized to my friend Calgary-Fort candidate Jeevan Mangat and I apologize to Brian Jean and all Wildrose candidates.”
