Alberta Party calls on PC Caucus to fire Redford and Horner, asks what PC leadership candidates would do

Posted on July 29, 2014 by Katherine Taylor

CALGARY – Today’s revelations regarding the extent of the misuse of Alberta Government resources for personal gain place pressure on the Progressive Conservative Caucus to act immediately.

“Premier Hancock needs to call an emergency meeting of his caucus to determine if former Premier Redford represents the values and vision of his caucus,” said Alberta Party Leader Greg Clark. “If he takes no action, I think we can see exactly which values the PC Party represents today.”

“Second, will Premier Hancock fire Minister Horner? Minister Horner was responsible for allowing this misuse of government resources,” said Clark. “As Minister of Finance and Treasury Board President he was solely responsible for the use of aircraft and did not put a stop to their misuse.”

“And finally, it is time for Jim Prentice, Ric McIver and Thomas Lukaszuk to tell us where they stand regarding Ms. Redford. Would they ask her to resign her seat? Would they keep Minister Horner in Cabinet?”

“It’s time to restore honour to government in Alberta. This can’t and clearly won’t be done by a tired, old and entitled PC Party,” said Clark.

“It’s time for them to go.”

    Hi Carla. Greg is on a very packed High River tour today, but wanted to respond to your question. He said that the PC caucus decides who fits PC values and hence is part of their group. We call on them to remove Redford from caucus and Hancock should fire Horner from cabinet role responsible for gov’t air fleet and travel because this scandal happened on his watch. Hopefully, this answers your question. Thanks for asking!

    Looking for some clarification Greg – are you calling for the PC party to “fire” an elected official (Horner) from his seat or as Minister of Finance and Treasury?

    Same question regarding Redford. Do you feel they should oust her as an MLA or as a party member?
