CALGARY - Alberta Tories have reached a compromise over a controversial move to attempt to strip federal Conservative MPs of their automatic voting privileges at provincial conventions.
Delegates at the Alberta Progressive Conservative convention voted to allow the MPs to retain their previous status.
However, the federal members will no longer be allowed to bring along 15 extra delegates to the annual gathering in the future.
Deputy Premier Thomas Lukaszuk (LOO'-kaz-ik) calls it a good compromise on a delicate issue.
He says each individual now has only a single vote.
There were hard feelings in Alberta's last provincial election when a number of Conservative MPs were openly supporting the opposition Wildrose party.
