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.
