Re: “MLA expense claims are a joke”, (Aug., 24, Citizen)
A friend sent me a copy of this letter, as he knows I ‘follow’ Joe’s [Sawchuk] numerous letters.
I fully admit that Joe has researched the expenses indicated very well. However, it would perhaps behoove him to also research dollars wasted by the Liberals, big dollars.
Just one or two incurred by the Liberals: a $8,170 round trip to Haida Gwaii for a murky initiative to give a $150,000 grant.
As is usual when Premier Clark flies, she has aides and a bodyguard.
There have been 14 other trips that have been described as photo opportunities, the costs of which far surpass those mentioned by Joe about the NDP.
I do have a question, the bodyguard that is with our premier, does he also accompany her on trips outside of the province, or does she only require protection in B.C.?
After all, Premier Clark has run up over $500,000 since 2011 on private aircraft.
Just for clarification, I am a West Vancouver endangered species, a senior who is renting.
