HIGH RIVER, AB (September 12, 2014): Today, Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith released the following statement on the resignation of Premier Dave Hancock:
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Premier Hancock for his service as leader of Alberta’s government and as an MLA for his constituents for the past 17 years.
