Cypress Medicine Hat MLA Drew Barnes has released a letter publicly he wrote to Premier Jason Kenney.

Barnes was a member of the Fair Deal Panel who’s report was made public Wednesday.

Barnes thanked Kenney for the opportunity to be on the panel and gave the Premier some final thoughts.

Barnes said that if Ottawa or other provinces reject any proposals, that Albertans should be given the opportunity to vote on their independence.

Barnes concluded the letter by saying if a deal wasn’t possible -quote- “The majority of my constituents in Cypress-Medicine Hat and from across our land have made clear that we must seek another relationship, as a sovereign people.”
