EDMONTON — Alberta's Opposition Wildrose party says suspended finance critic Derek Fildebrandt could return to caucus within days.

But Wildrose leader Brian Jean says Fildebrandt first needs to make some changes to how he communicates on social media.

Fildebrandt was suspended late Friday night after he applauded a reader comment on his Facebook page that mocked the sexuality of Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne.

Wynne is openly gay.

A day earlier, Fildebrandt was criticized for lambasting Ontario's high debt and spending while Wynne sat watching in the Alberta legislature gallery.

Jean says Fildebrandt's suspension has nothing to do with his criticism of Wynne in the house.
