EDMONTON - Alberta Premier Alison Redford plans to meet this weekend with elected leaders of the province's two largest cities.

Redford, re-elected Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi and Edmonton's mayor-elect Don Iveson are to meet Saturday morning.

A government news release says they will discuss ways to work together to build a stronger province.

Both cities want action on promised big-city charters that would give them more taxing and spending authority.

Nenshi won a second term in Monday's municipal elections.

Iveson replaces departing Edmonton Mayor Stephen Mandel.
