Quadri takes heat for billing taxpayers for a bash in his honour - and won't pay them back!

Marc PatroneRebel Commentator

MLA Sohail Quadri held a big bash in his honour and laid a $5000 bill on the taxpayers' table.

Sohail Quadri, PC MLA for Edmonton-Mill Woods is facing a tough battle against the NDP in his re-election campaign and this spending scandal is not helping his cause.

Quadri told the Rebel.Media, he threw the party for 500 friends to mark his one year anniversary as MLA, not realizing it would cause so much controversy.

Despite admitting his mistake, Quadri says he has no intention of paying back the $5000.00 he expensed for the big bash.

Wildrose Party leader Brian Jean says Quadri would be in a lot more trouble if he was a federal MP.

"Absolutely, no question at all. If he was at the federal government level, he would be at the same place Mike Duffy is today. He would be facing charges in my opinion. He would have to give back the money for certain," says Jean.

Edmonton resident Mike Taliani couldn't believe anybody, even a rookie MLA could be so cavalier with the taxpayers money.

"Taxpayers should not have to pay money for anybody's party," says Taliani.

Quadri says it was misunderstanding on his part, not an intentional abuse of taxmoney.

Voters will render a verdict election day May 5th.

We hereby do confer the title of Duke on our Royal Albertan MLA Sohail Quadri , henceforth known in our Kingdom as Duke of Edmonton-Mill Woods . They think they are royalty and perhaps we should give them the titles.

I don’t have anything against any ethnicity in Canadian politics, but we don’t need anymore politicians on any level who think its ok to feed at the trough.

At this rate we will see Kadars name in some office for some position and I bet it is Liberal.

He is East Indian like the majority of the people in Millwoods, he doesn’t care because unless another East Indian is running in his zone he will win.

Prentice, if you are looking for reasons why your party has lost popular support look no further.

Sohail Quadri, are you serious? Alberta doesn’t need your kind of of politician. You are exactly what Alberta is trying to purge itself of.

Just another day to day example of PCs idea of entitlement. Stop the insanity and vote Wildrose.

So Quadri is in a quandary?

I agree Vlad. It is poetic justice. If the Wildrose takes office, then Danielle Smith will definitely realize she made the wrong move.

Go WIldrose!

Funny – Danielle Smith was paid off to leave the Wildrose only to watch the party she walked away from a few months ago poised to win the election. Payback are a …..
