The NDP continue to lose their collective minds over the prospect of Jason Kenney becoming leader of the PC party in Alberta and uniting the right. It’s caused them to pretend to be fiscal hawks, dissecting Jason Kenney’s expenses over the last 10 years as an MP.
On the NDP Alberta website, they did the best they could to drudge up some sort of Kenney scandal.
Watch as I show you how they attacked him over a few expenses - all legitimate and all arguably lower than they could have been.
It’s amazing that suddenly the NDP are watchdogs of taxpayer dollars.
Instead of worrying about a one time expense for Jason Kenney’s mom, the NDP should really crack down on paying the moving expenses for all the newly hired out of province NDP rejects. It cost Alberta taxpayer $99,000 to relocate these 16 mercenaries, their Stalin memorabilia and their Karl Marx troll collections - so far.
Instead of feigning anger that Jason Kenney’s federal department spent $750,000 to monitor media perceptions, maybe the NDP can cut out their newly created army of journalist monitoring real time trolls; the Issues Managers that cost taxpayers $1 million this year.
Instead of being mad that Jason Kenney went to Bilderberg, spending $10,000, maybe the NDP could crack down on the travel expenses of their own Ministers, including when Shannon Phillips and company expensed their carbon offsets to taxpayers — their penance for the climate crime of flying to COP21.
The NDP’s poorly thought out attack actually shows that Jason Kenney is more careful with taxpayer money than they are.
Whoever thought it was a good idea to attack Jason Kenney while pretending they respect the taxpayer, should be fired for their terrible idea.
Just kidding. No one gets fired for doing a bad job for the NDP. Just ask Joe Ceci.
