There really is no limit to the NDP’s expensive tastes with taxpayer money.
With Albertans struggling with a global economic and health crisis, now more than ever resources need to be prioritized to what matters most.
But over the past year alone, the NDP fought to keep open an MLA gift shop that had lost more than $1.1 million.
And now they’re defending an expensive, opulent, and fancy plant wall that lines the entrance by NDP offices in Edmonton.
The wall costs $70,000 a year just for routine maintenance and to keep up.
What was the NDP’s response when they found out their luxurious plant wall was coming to an end?
To bellyache and complain.
Rachel Notley’s NDP MLA Richard Feehan believes he’s a pretty big dill and that it should always be party thyme by his office.
It’s almost like they think money grows on trees!
He said the government wants to take down the wall because the government isn’t “good with living things.”
Province removing living wall from Edmonton’s Federal Building, citing high maintenance costs. Well of course they are. This government isn’t any good with living things. #ableg https://t.co/Z52LEB61Wb— Richard Feehan (@FeehanRichard) November 18, 2020
The fact is, the NDP has always had a prickly relationship with taxpayer money. They believe that taxpayer money is their money. They don’t respect the fact that money comes straight out of Albertans’ pocket books and believe they are entitled to all the perks at their offices, while making it more expensive for Albertans to run a business.
Those are the NDP priorities. Meanwhile, United Conservatives remain focused on getting our economy fired up again while protecting Albertans’ health and safety.
