EDMONTON - Federal Immigration Minister Jason Kenney isn't commenting on a leaked email in which he profanely insults Alberta deputy premier Thomas Lukaszuk (loo-KAH'-zuhk).

Kenney told an Alberta open-line radio show (Rutherford-CHQR-CHED) that he doesn't comment on personal emails.

He also didn't apologize to Lukaszuk, or say whether he will.

Kenney says his relationship with the province is generally good and he plans to work to keep it that way.

The email, obtained by the Edmonton Journal, was reportedly inadvertently sent by Kenney to a wider audience than he intended.

In it, he rejects a meeting with Lukaszuk and mocks him as a "complete and utter" a--hole.
