EDMONTON – The Alberta government says it made a mistake and no reporters will be excluded from government news events while a review of the province’s media policies is conducted.

Cheryl Oates, the premier’s communications director, says they’ve had a lot of feedback from Albertans and media and it’s clear the government made a mistake.

Contributors to a highly conservative website, The Rebel, founded by political commentator Ezra Levant have said that they were barred from two government new conferences earlier this month.

The statement said the government will wait for the review to be completed before making any decisions.

It has asked Heather Boyd, recently retired Western Canada bureau chief for The Canadian Press, to come up with recommendations on media accreditation.

She is expected to report back in two to three weeks.
