Mike Olesik Hey pc trolls, who are the dippers now.

Julie Ali There are dippers in every political party. We were just lucky to find one among the UCP folks. Mind you there were many in the PCs in Alberta in my opinion. Politicians sure know how to legally work the system.

Michael Petch Is it ethical to claim allowances allowed under the rules? Absolutetly, yes. LAO says it is allowable practice. It is not immoral to maximize allowable decuctions or claim allowances. I don't feel immoral or guilty when I claw back money from the government when dealing with my business and personal taxes. The only issue here isn't even one of morality or legality. In Derek's case it is really one of whether he is hypocritical given what he has said as finance critic and someone who claims to have taxpayer best interests at heart.

The 7,720 per quarter is a maximum. If he can show that his expenses are actually higher than that and the maximum doesn't cover it I see no issue with subsiding the difference between the maximum cap and what his true expenses are. The specifics of that are between the LAO and Derek, and they are saying what he did was allowable. I have to assume the LAO knows the rules, and understands Derek's situation more so than what is reported in the media.

If he didn't declare the rental income on his taxes then I'd have issues with thatt too.
