Kaycee Madu would be the only United Conservative Party candidate elected within the boundaries of the city of Edmonton.

On April 30, 2019, Kaycee Madu was appointed to the Executive Council of Alberta as the Minister of Municipal Affairs, and held that role until August 25, 2020, when he was appointed Minister of Justice and Solicitor General. Early in his mandate, Madu wrote an op-ed published in Postmedia newspapers titled Spending by Alberta’s two big cities— is unsustainable which called on municipal leaders in Calgary City Council and Edmonton City Council to lower spending and reduce taxes, claiming the cities placed an “undue burden” on residents.

The article was published on October 22, 2019, two days prior to the introduction of the provincial budget. Claims made in the op-ed were challenged by the Mayors of Calgary and Edmonton, including that the data supplied by Canadian Federation of Independent Business significantly overestimated the 10-year growth in municipal expenditures, and did not account for inflation.

Kaycee Madu was responsible for a number of controversial funding reductions to Alberta municipalities during his time as Minister of Municipal Affairs. Among those decisions, included the repealing of the City Charters Fiscal Framework Act which legislated provincial transfers to the Cities of Edmonton and Calgary; reductions to the Municipal Sustainability Initiative, an infrastructure financing program which was reduced cumulatively by $236-million over two years from 2020–21 to 2021–22; and reduction of the Grants in Place of Taxes program by 50%, which provides municipalities with grants which off-set the property tax requisitions for provincially owned buildings.

Madu oversaw the beginning of property assessment valuation changes to oil and gas infrastructure, changing from a valuation based on the replacement cost, to the depreciated value of the asset, which led to the leaders of a number of rural municipalities in Alberta speaking out. According to CTV News, municipalities in rural Alberta raised concerns that the proposed changes would “cost them millions” by reducing the property tax base by between $108-million to $291-million.

He introduced Local Authorities Election Amendment Act, 2020 (Bill 29) to the Alberta Legislature in June 2020, which amended the legislation which outlines the rules for municipal and school board elections. The amendments to the Local Authorities Election Act removed the requirement for candidates to disclose their donors prior to election day, removed limits on spending by third-party advertisers outside the local election campaign period from May 1 to election day in October, and allowed individuals to donate up to $5,000 to as many candidates as they want during an election.

The Alberta Urban Municipalities Association, which represents urban municipal elected officials in Alberta released a statement shortly after the introduction of Bill 29, stating the relationship between Minister Madu and the association was “Broken”. Bill 29 and other policy decisions were cited as the reason for the statement by the AUMA. One month following the statement, Premier Jason Kenney shuffled his Cabinet, moving Madu to Minister of Justice and Solicitor General, and promoting backbench MLA Tracy Allard to the role of Minister of Municipal Affairs.

On March 4, 2020, Kaycee Madu was designated as a Queen’s Counsel by the lieutenant governor of Alberta via an Order-in-Council. Queen’s Counsel is the highest honour awarded to lawyers who have made significant contributions to the advancement of law and society. Madu was named Minister of Justice and Solicitor General of Alberta in August 2020. As the first Black person to serve in the role, as well as his work experience with the legal aid system, Madu’s appointment was praised for bringing “much-needed perspective”.

In March 2021, CBC News reported that the Lethbridge Police Service monitored the environment minister under the previous New Democratic government, among other scandals. This prompted Madu to give an April 16 deadline to the service to “address issues of recruiting, training, oversight, discipline, transparency and communications”. Upon receipt of the service’s submission, Madu indicated his disappointment. In January 2022, the service signed an agreement which would begin an inquiry surrounding the issues.

On March 10, 2021, Kaycee Madu was stopped by the Edmonton Police Service and issued a traffic ticket for using his cellphone while driving in a school zone. Following the incident, Madu would call Chief of Police Dale McFee, raising concerns about the context of the stop, discussing people of colour being stopped by police and tension with the Lethbridge Police Service. McFee later stated that Madu did not ask for the ticket to be rescinded. The incident was revealed on January 17, 2022 and prompted calls for Madu’s resignation.

Madu was placed on a leave of absence later in the day by Premier Jason Kenney pending the conclusion of a probe into his conduct. In the interim, energy minister Sonya Savage assumed his position in an acting capacity. An investigation into the matter by Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench judge Adele Kent found that Madu had not interfered in the administration of justice, but that his phone call to the chief of police created a “reasonable perception of interference.”
