An Alberta-based group that became a target for Premier Jason Kenney in last year's provincial election is threatening legal action over a public inquiry into the funding of environmentalists.

A lawyer for Progress Alberta, an Edmonton-based non-profit that has been a vocal critic of Mr. Kenney's United Conservative Party government, sent a letter last week to the inquiry's commissioner arguing that the process violates the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

The letter demands that the inquiry be shut down or the group will file a legal challenge. It would be the second court case related to the inquiry, after Vancouver-based environmental group Ecojustice filed its own challenge late last year.
