The expense totals are in for the NDP vacation to France. Did I say vacation to France? Sorry, I meant the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris, COP21.
What was the grand total for for the 13 person entourage of Rachel Notley and Environment Minister Shannon Phillips? $71,000.
Alberta’s oil sands contribute one tenth of one percent of global C02 emissions. We are, in essence, a statistical rounding error. Yet, Rachel Notley spent $71,000 Alberta doesn’t have to fix a problem we have no impact on.
If Rachel Notley wants to spend $71,000 on a meeting, she should hold one with job creators, farmers and small business people.
