Lucia Iorio Kevin. ..I am a grown middle aged woman ... who had no choice but to put up with Conservative rule in this province for over 40 odd years...... and I do not need to be school by you. I will agree it speaks loud and clear to the character of the man. However, I stand by my comment it is most assuredly a Conservative trait..... let them eat cake

J.E. Molnar Fildebrandt needs to resign immediately for gross malfeasance by a public official.

Trying to defend this underhanded act of deception, Fildebrandt just outed himself as a vile hypocrite. The fact the Wildrose Party likely knew of the arrangement puts into question their suitability as a bona fide government-in-waiting. Double-dipping is not cool Mr. Fildebrandt.

Kyle D.W Wickstrom I guarantee he's not the only one gaming the system. Something tells me this story was meant for after he was supposed to announce his leadership bid. So much for that though hey postmedia?

Should cut everyone of these scum bag politicians off from the public tit. Build them a camp and pack em in like sardines like they do in the oil sands and be done with it.

Julie Ali The NDP government should require revelations of all who are gaming the system in this way. Then they should close this loophole. And voters should fire the gamers.

Graham MacFarlane Who remembers Jack Layton continuously getting slammed for "living in subsidized housing" when he lived in a co-op where he paid market rates but other tenants qualified for subsidies? Jason Kenney might remember.

John Newman Really! Nothing wrong eh. Just another form of double dipping. Get paid by the government get paid privately for the same thing. Typical right wing thinking. Screw the tax payer.

Anna Lori Pears DF will lose his job over this, and then will complain that the reason it happened was that he did not back Brian Jean as leader.
He has already proven himself to be a loose cannon, and the UCP do not need him.
This is not a reflection on the party, it is all about DF.

He needs to go.

Julie Ali Mr. Jean is a nice man and it wasn't very nice of Derek Fildebrandt to say he is not good leadership material. As this case proves, Mr. Jean is very capable and has effectively neutralized the MLA who was too big for his britches.
