Wilkinson confirmed this week he's investigating Premier Alison Redford's alleged conflict of interest for her role as justice minister in 2010 in recommending her ex-husband's firm for the province's $10-billion Big Tobacco suit.
"Albertans need to have the confidence that an investigation into the premier will be completely impartial," Anderson said.
Prior to his appointment, Wilkinson was a PC donor involved in PC leadership campaigns, Anderson said, noting that Wilkinson testified in the province's queue-jumping inquiry Monday as former chair of the Capital Health Region and his appointment's up for renewal in front of a PC-dominated legislature committee in November.
In 2012, Wilkinson waived the "cooling off" period for former Tory cabinet minister Evan Berger to get a job with his former ministry, citing Berger's status in the "government family."
