EDMONTON – A photo showing a cutout of Rachel Notley’s head being used as a golf target is making the rounds on Twitter.
It was posted Friday with the caption ‘just love the #notley target at the oilmen’s golf tourney.’
The photo was allegedly taken during a golf tournament in Brooks.
The tweet has since been removed.
On Saturday, Ken Fleury apologized for the tweet.

Late Saturday evening Fleury’s Twitter account was deleted.
Minister for the Status of Women, Stephanie McLean called the tweet “appalling” in the wake of the death of a British MP last week.
