Calgary-Greenway MLA Prab Gill’s announcement comes a day after UCP Leader Jason Kenney told reporters he’d received a report from a probe the party launched into the Calgary-North East annual general meeting on June 30.

Kenney said on Friday that he hadn’t had a chance to see the completed report by former Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Ted Carruthers.

But a video posted online earlier this month alleged voting irregularities at the meeting.

Gill released a statement saying though he did not agree with everything in the investigation; he accepts the findings and recognizes the party went through a “fair and independent process.”

He says he has also informed the party that he will not be contesting a United Conservative nomination, although he will serve out the remainder of his term as an Independent MLA.
