Could Brian Jean come back to Alberta politics? The answer is no.

The Fort McMurray native and former Wildrose party leader refuted the rumours on his Twitter account.

Jean left politics after losing the United Conservative Party leadership race to Jason Kenney.

Kenney said he doesn’t know what Jean’s plans are, but that one conservative party is all they need.

It was rumoured Jean was recruiting and planning to lead the fledgeling Freedom Conservative Party.

Tweets from former prime minister Stephen Harper and current Saskatchewan premier Scott Moe call for conservatives to remain united.
