Alberta's United Conservative government is firing the province's election commissioner, but says it's not because he is investigating the party and has fined it more than $200,000.

Finance Minister Travis Toews says the decision to end Lorne Gibson's contract is strictly about saving money.

"This restructuring is about finding efficiencies and ensuring that we have the most defensible process and structure going forward," Toews said Monday.
