Anger is growing over the defections yesterday by 9 members of the Wildrose party caucus.
Now some former Danielle Smith supporters have launched a petition to recall Smith “over her choice to betray the voters who elected her.” Organizer Caitlyn Madlener feels betrayed by a party she donated to and campaigned for.
Madlener says it’s particularly hard to take when the Wildrose talked about the need for recall legislation for politicians who violated the trust of their constituents. She says Smith once said she valued politicians with principles. Now the former Wildrose leader should live up to that, resign her seat and run in a byelection.
The petition at recalldanielle.ca has collected over 200 signatures since Wednesday evening.
