Julie Ali This is just one of the many ABCs (agency, board, commission) that we pay major bucks for. When will the NDP get through the others? The pruning in the entitlement of these employees is long over due and we're wanting action. The elite at just the AHS place and at Covenant Health need to have salary, benefits and expenses cut; its ridiculous that we are paying so much for so few deliverables. Don't just spend time telling us about one agency. What about the many others?

Jim Tower having worked there for 11 years i can understand the inquiry.. mismanagement wasteful spending.. presidents appointed so they could top up pensions.. board members who farmed getting preferential treatment for loans others would not qualify for... the whole depatyment was a joke
Mike Olesik The old pc club looked after themselves. This probably 1 example of many under the pc crooks that the people kept voting in. Funny thing is, all the pc lovers always complain about unions, these crooks got paid way more then union personnal.

Michael Cameron They can spent taxpayer money however they want. Use it for vacations, traveling, down payments on houses/cars, sky palaces, buying out all seats on a 747 because you want to work alone on the trip, etc. As conservatives they are allowed to do these things. One of the perks.

Kendyl Hudson But if the NDP go on a business junket, we have to account for every penny they spend or its inquiry time.

Michael Cameron Then they should be paying for the whole trip out of their own pocket.

Chuck Keil "The investigation that found unnecessary travel on the taxpayer’s dime, and gifts of booze, theatre tickets and rounds of golf, was handed over to the RCMP to investigate whether there was criminal wrongdoing.

The corporation’s president and managing
 director, Brad Klak, its chief operating officer, Merle Jacobson, and its vice-president of innovation and product development, Wayne McDonald, were all suspended with pay."

So what did the RCMP conclude?
Kendyl Hudson An investigation takes time. People are suspended until a decision is made as to any wrongdoing.

Harvey Bishop Carco Smith The Alberta PCs, after Peter Lougheed left office, were the extremely corrupt disasters. They virtually depleted Alberta's finances from multitudes of very costly scandals and neglect. They also permeated many organizations in Alberta, leaving a very corrupt influence. This is one example of many.

Gil Whyte What was the outcome of the investigation? It is great to say there was an investigation, but is there any substantiated guilt?
Kendyl Hudson Says right in the title: "The investigation that found unnecessary travel on the taxpayer’s dime, and gifts of booze, theatre tickets and rounds of golf, was handed over to the RCMP to investigate whether there was criminal wrongdoing."
