'I don't need this job': Kenney says he has to stay to keep 'lunatics' from 'trying to take over the asylum'

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney was speaking to his party's caucus staff on Tuesday when he told them how close he came to stepping back from his job ahead of the upcoming leadership review.

"What's the easiest path for me? Just to take a walk. I don't need this job. I could go to the private sector, have my evenings, weekends off," the premier told the gathering.

The remarks are contained in an audio file secretly recorded by someone in attendance and obtained by CBC News.

"I don't say this stuff publicly, these are just kooky people generally," he told staff, thanking them for their efforts to motivate "mainstream conservatives" to support him.
