Canada: Alberta's UCP leader announces party platform including recall law

United Conservative Party leader Jason Kenney is proposing a recall law as part of their platform for the Alberta provincial election. Kenney is also proposing a ban on MLAs switching parties, which I always find an interesting phenomena.

The proposed recall law would require signatures of 40% of eligible voters and couldn't be started until 18 months into the term. This is a very high barrier and it mimics the British Columbia recall law, which I believe has not been used to remove an official since its adoption in 1991.
