Alberta health council board member resigns after CBC report about donations

CALGARY - The Health Quality Council of Alberta says a board member has resigned after a media report about his illegal donations to the provincial Conservative party.

The council says John Vogelzang resigned Thursday, effective immediately.

CBC Edmonton reported it obtained expense records for Vogelzang that show he was involved in illegal political donations to the Conservative party while he was CEO of the David Thompson Health Region.

Dr. Tony Fields, chairman of the board of the council, said in a news release that it takes "very seriously" the impact the CBC report has on the group.

He says the council's credibility with the public and its partners are critical to efforts to improve the quality and safety of health services for Albertans.

It's against the law to use public money for political purposes in Alberta.
