Banff-Kananaski MLA Miranda Rosin has confirmed she did travel to Saskatchewan for Christmas and says she didn't break any COVID-19 rules.
The MLA says she lives alone, and both Alberta and Saskatchewan permitted individuals who live alone to join another household for Christmas.
MLA Rosin spent Christmas with her parents in Saskatchewan.
"Those who had responsibilities removed travelled abroad – not to a neighbouring province with matching policies while following public health guidelines," continues the statement issued by Tim Gerwing, UCP caucus communications director, at 11:21 a.m. today (Jan. 13).
Rosin says she has not left the country since the beginning of the pandemic and remains in her role as vice-chair of the committee reviewing the Public Health Act.
A red flag was raised when photographic evidence came to light that indicated she was in Saskatchewan for Christmas. She had declined to comment on the issue until today.
