Alberta Municipal Affairs Minister Kaycee Madu has accused the New Democratic Party of playing politics with Black people, who he said are treated worse in countries governed by "NDP allies."

In a heated exchange in the Alberta Legislature Monday, Madu, the UCP caucus's lone Black member, made the accusations after he rose to field questions from NDP justice critic Kathleen Ganley.

She was attempting to extract an apology from Premier Jason Kenney or Justice Minister Doug Schweitzer for appointing Cold Lake lawyer Leighton Grey to the Provincial Court Nominating Committee (PCNC), which helps choose judges for the provincial court.
