Alberta’s jobs minister Doug Schweitzer has resigned.
In a tweet on Friday afternoon, Schweitzer announced he has provided Premier Jason Kenney with his resignation from Cabinet.
He also said he will continue to serve as MLA until the end of the month or another date established closer to that time.
“It was an honour to serve alongside the premier and my colleagues. I believe that people will look back at the last six to 12 months as the economic turning point for Alberta,” Schweitzer’s announcement read.
Schweitzer previously said in May that he will not seek re-election next year.
