Alberta's prime minister says Calgary MLA Stephanie McLean resigned

Stephanie McLean, MLA for Calgary-Varsity, resigned from her position in Alberta's legislature, according to a post on Facebook's Facebook page by Rachel Notty on Wednesday.

The post did not offer details of the resignation, but wished McLean the best place in her future efforts.

McLean announced in May 2018 that he would not require re-election.

During his time in office, McLean was Minister of Service Alberta and Status of Women, and was also the first Alberta MLA who was born while in office.

"As Minister of Service Alberta, Stephanie has protected the Albertians by strengthening the rules on wage reimbursement and the reconstruction of consumer protection legislation in the province," Netli said in a statement. "As a minister for the status of women, it has led to the commitment of our government to end sexual violence and to organize a campaign to encourage women to run for a municipal office."

Before entering politics, McLean practiced family and criminal law.
