The NDP don't want you to believe what you can see with your own eyes about my investigation into the disastrous handling of the water bomber contracts last spring.
Rachel Notley, in her spring budget, cut the budget for wildfire fighting. Since the spring fire season was well underway, this left bureaucrats in Agriculture and Forestry scrambling.
The reckless cuts to the fire suppression budget caused the bureaucrats to try to rewrite contracts for fewer wildfire fighting days to 93 days down from 123, caused the casual water bomber contracts to not be posted at all and eventually resulted in such confusion within the ministry that they had to cancel all the water bomber contracts on April 22.
The contracts were then re-tendered ten days later, May 2, the day after the Fort Mac Fire was first spotted.
Now that this has been uncovered, NDP are lying about it, right in the legislature!
Watch my video to see what year Minister of Municipal Affairs, Danielle Larivee, thinks the cancelled water bomber contracts were for, and then see the emails that prove her wrong.
The NDP think Albertans are dumb enough to believe their dishonest excuses rather than our own eyes and the words of the government bureaucrats.
If the NDP will try to mislead us about the biggest news story in Alberta over the last year, they will mislead us about anything.
