Oberg to Alliance party?

EDMONTON/630 CHED – The leader of the Alberta Alliance Party is throwing down the welcome mat for Lyle Oberg after he was ousted from the government caucus and stripped of his cabinet post.
Alliance Leader Paul Hinman says he’s hearing rumours that Oberg is being urged by at least one of his supporters to join the Alliance, rather than sit as an independent.
Hinman says he doesn’t condone Oberg speaking out against his own party, but the Alliance Leader says the former cabinet minister may want to challenge the government from the outside.
Hinman says he’s also eager to talk with any other disenchanted government members who might want to cross the floor of the legislature and join the Alliance.
