Full investigation In a letter dated May 16, Wildrose accountability critic Nathan Cooper and health critic Tany Yao asked Alberta's ethics commissioner to launch a full investigation into Amrhein's relationship with Pure North, if she has not conducted one already. "Albertans want to know that decisions aren't being made within the health department because of personal relationships or cronyism," Cooper said in a news release. "It's our hope that the ethics commissioner will accept our call for an investigation and get to the bottom of what's really happening with the deputy minister of health and Pure North."
