Alberta Opposition Leader Jason Kenney says it is up to the United Conservative Party's board to decide whether to expel a member who compared the LGBTQ rainbow flag to the swastika.

Kenney told reporters he does not have the power to force John Carpay out of the party, even though Kenney announced two weeks ago he had directed the party to pull the card of another member following reported links to that member and a white supremacist website.

"It's our board that deals with expulsions," Kenney told reporters Wednesday.
