Brina Jean’s apologies for his social media post: 

United Conservative party optimistic Brian Jean feels sorry after a post on social media site spotlighted the city of his political rival in the race to represent the UCP in the Fort McMurray-Lac La Biche district. 

On Saturday, a post was made on Jean’s Linkedin site, requesting individuals to purchase a 10 dollar UCP membership in Fort McMurray-Lac La Biche, a riding that presently has no MLA after Laila Goodridge created the successful jump from regional to federal politics. 

The published read: “There can only be one UCP candidate. Jason Kenney’s people don’t want it to be me. They are pushing a Nigerian economist who stays in Fort McMurray,” referring to candidate Joshua Gogo, who is also taking the UCP nomination. Source –

Jean has since withdrawn the post and in a statement, he stated the post was written by a crusade volunteer. 

Jean stated in the email that the publisher had an “unacceptable connotation. The comment was promptly withdrawn.” 

He also stated he called and messaged Gogo and felt sorry.
