NDP MLA McLean’s taxpayer accountability claims don’t match reality

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator

Service Alberta Minister Stephanie McLean says her NDP government would never ever be as wasteful with taxpayer dollars as the Redford Tories were.

McLean told the Canadian Press:

“It is certainly important for us to show a different face, a different government, one that cares about every dollar and cent that is being spent and to follow through on that commitment by letting interested parties know how it is being spent without going through a lengthy freedom of access request”

Hold on here.

Two weeks ago, we found out that NDP MLA for Red Deer South, Barb Miller spent $4,800 on coffee pods in three months.

And right after that, we found out about the limo loving chair of the Calgary south mental health review panel, Marilyn Smith. She's taken tens of thousands of dollars of limo rides all over southern Alberta.

If the NDP were serious about accountability, they would have done something about these expenses.

They'd have found these abuses of taxpayer funds before I did. There would be consequences waiting for these entitled takers. Instead, there were none.

Notley’s NDP are at least the same as Redford, if not worse.

There was backlash and accountability for Redford from people within her own caucus who still had a shred of integrity left.

But the NDP? Not one has stood up for Albertans.

All socialists. All the same.

Financial collapse is about all that “learns” them.

Obviously, the NDP, just as the Liberals, are entitled to their entitlements.

Hey Bugs, you can bet that fat grease ball Mason will never have to drive bus again. What a feeding frenzy they will have, they know they are heading to the trash heap next election. Hope they don;t clash heads too much diving into the slop pail.

Drew, “honestly corrupt”……. I like that. Alison was a typical UN liberal lawyer debutante type. One of my favourites was when she and Petunia got caught stuffing their faces in an Italian restaurant , and I mean stuffing.

Stay on their back Sheila, not only is this the worst government Alberta has had but they are as profligate at the public trough as the Redford PCs.

Drew: So true. Yesterday, I heard Brian Mason on the news saying he’d like to be “as generous as possible” with a certain government program. “Generous” was a strange word for him to use when talking about giving Albertans back OUR OWN money, taken from us under duress in new and creative ways.

At least Redford was honestly corrupt, these clowns actually think they are helping us poor peasants.

They are likely worse than redfords group because they know they are finished next election. They will grab every cent they can before they are voted out. If her lips were moving she was lying.
