Alberta's election commissioner is no longer pursuing a $5,500 fine against Rebel Media, instead settling on a reprimand, according to a court filing.

In December, Alberta's Office of the Election Commissioner informed the far-right outlet that it was launching an investigation into a billboard near Innisfail after receiving a complaint from Elections Alberta.

The billboard calls for the firing of Alberta Education Minister David Eggen over provincial exam scores. It includes images of both Eggen and Premier Rachel Notley, as well as the web address FireEggen.ca, which leads to a campaign on Rebel Media's website.
