Access to information documents from the Government of Alberta show that Jim Prentice, Alberta’s last Progressive Conservative premier, hired the Liberal speechwriting firm of Feschuk Reid to write his speeches.
Scott Feschuk was Paul Martin’s campaign speechwriter and Scott Reid was Martin’s chief of staff.
Feschuk Reid signed a contract for $18,000 with the Government of Alberta, but only billed $5,600 against it. The two-month contract ended March 31, 2015, seven days before the writ was dropped.
It’s tempting to be upset that an Alberta premier hired Ottawa insiders, but given the disastrous results for Prentice, millions of Albertans have felt an unfamiliar feeling: gratitude toward the Liberal Party of Canada.
It is also the only recorded case in history of an Ottawa Liberal billing less than a contract allowed them to be paid.
