Changes in the Alberta Cabinet. New Premier Jim Prentice has announced his new inner circle and Greg Weadick is not on that list, out as Municipal Affairs Minister.

Lethbridge West MLA Greg Weadick is no longer an Alberta Cabinet Minister. New Premier Jim Prentice announced his inner circle Monday (Sept. 15). Weadick, who’s been holding down the Municipal Affairs portfolio, is being replaced by Diana McQueen. Weadick tells CJOC News that decision was made by the Premier. He says it was a bit of a let down for him to not have someone in Cabinet from south of Calgary. Only a few members of the previous cabinet remain in the inner circle, including Ric McIver, who will be the Provincial Jobs Minister. Weadick says regardless of being in Cabinet or not, he will continue to work hard to represent the interests of people in Lethbridge. – Pat Siedlecki
