Air Ed

In yet another case of taxpayer funded globetrotting, a pair of retiring Tory MLAs jetted to Germany to learn how to become better MLAs.

EDMONTON - Last Thursday, Gary Mar learned he'll become Alberta's new agent in Washington and must resign as a Tory MLA by late October.

Three days later, he jetted to Germany on a publicly funded trip to learn how to become a better legislator.

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation's provincial director laughed when he was told.

A trip on how to become a better MLA? I hope one of the suggestions they made was about not wasting money on silly trips designed to teach you how to become a better MLA.

  • These stories you keep posting are disgusting, Dan. Just goes to show that both sides of the aisle are thieves when they can be - these are the same Tories who love to whine about Adscam, after all.

  • I love how both of the Tories who learned how to be better MLAs aren't running again...

  • It cannot really have success, I suppose so.
