NDP statement on PCs shutting down international offices


EDMONTON –NDP MLA Brian Mason released the following statement regarding the PC government’s closure of three international offices and the suspension of two others in progress:

“From the beginning, the Alberta NDP has been a staunch critic of these international offices, which have all too often served as places of patronage for faithful Tory insiders and their privileged friends,” Mason said.
“We support the decision to close government offices in Chicago, Munich and Ottawa but we call on the government to come clean with Albertans on how much money has been wasted on the cancelled projects in California and Brazil.”
