Former backbench NDP MLA Robyn Luff has sparked a debate on the role of parties in Alberta politics. Luff began the fall session by refusing to sit in the legislature, protesting what she called a “culture of fear and intimidation” in the NDP that doesn’t let MLAs properly represent their constituents. In a series of open letters, Luff outlined her complaints against party brass, including Premier Rachel Notley, and said she wouldn’t return until the culture changed. She was booted from the party caucus. Luff joins Emma Graney to discuss the state of Alberta democracy.
