Former backbench NDP MLA Robyn Luff has sparked a debate on the role of parties in Alberta politics.

Luff began the fall session by refusing to sit in the legislature, protesting what she called a “culture of fear and intimidation” in the NDP that doesn’t let MLAs properly represent their constituents.

In a series of open letters, Luff outlined her complaints against party brass, including Premier Rachel Notley, and said she wouldn’t return until the culture changed.
