Alberta Party calls on PC Caucus to fire Redford and Horner, asks what PC leadership candidates would do
July 29, 2014
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.”
