Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said Thursday that he "fundamentally disagrees" with the contents of an article written in 2013 by his speechwriter that dismissed the "bogus genocide story" of Canada's residential school system.

But Kenney did not commit to firing speechwriter Paul Bunner for the article titled "The 'Genocide' That Failed," written for the online magazine C2C Journal.

"Somebody who was a journalist for 40 years undoubtedly wrote things with which I disagree," Kenney said. "That does not reflect or change the policy of the Government of Alberta."
