EDMONTON — Alberta Premier Rachel Notley is demanding Opposition Leader Jason Kenney "come clean" with voters on a spreading controversy involving one of his leadership rivals.

The CBC, citing email correspondence, is reporting that the RCMP has taken over an investigation into allegations of fraud in the 2017 race to see who would lead what was then the new United Conservative Party.

Kenney beat Calgary lawyer Doug Schweitzer and Brian Jean, who had been the Wildrose Party leader before it merged with the Progressive Conservatives.
