Alberta/Canadian-Media: Grande Prairie MLA Tracy Allard, minister of municipal affairs, and of Jamie Huckabay, chief of staff of Alberta premier Jason Kenney join a growing number of politicians across Canada who have admitted to travelling outside the country despite pandemic restrictions, leading to resignations in some cases, media reports said.

In his Facebook post on Monday, Kenney had said that he had also demoted five other United Conservative Party MLAs who travelled internationally over the holiday.
"Millions of Albertans have made real sacrifices over the past 10 months to help keep each other safe. They are right to be angry about people in positions of leadership vacationing outside of the country," Kenney wrote.
Kenney's announcement followed days after after being under a lot of intense criticism by Albertans over the holiday trips
There had been social media calls for Kenney and Allard to resign, while MLAs have been bombarded with emails and phone calls from angry constituents.
