This is part of what continues to hold Canada back. Clinging to power is more important than reform. If bylaws were breached I hope the responsible provincial/federal authorities can untangle the mess.

Further this update from the Alberta Cricket Council (ACC):, it seems ACC is vying with Cricket Alberta (formerly Alberta Cricket Association) to be the provincial representative for Cricket Canada.

From their website CA claims to represent:
-Edmonton & District Cricket League
-something called "Cricket Calgary Community"
-a number of city-based cricket organizations (Grand Prairie, Fort McMurray, Airdrie, Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Okotoks)

From their Facebook page ACC claims to represent:
-Calgary & District Cricket League
It is not clear whether other leagues have joined.

The result of the arbitration process could shift the balance of power among the provincial members for future Cricket Canada elections.

The situation is of interest beyond Alberta because of the implications for the leadership of Cricket Canada. The provincial body, Alberta Cricket Association apparently continues to wield 4 votes despite losing two of its members. ... =3&theater
By now CC was required by the arbitrator to hire an independent investigator. The investigator will interview all the parties and deliver a report to the arbitrator.

Seems like a clear reference to Alberta. Hopefully, this issue is concluded swiftly to the satisfaction of the vast majority of members in that province.
