Alberta Conservative MLAs Raking In Windfall Cash For 'Committee' Work

Alberta Conservative MLA's have found a nifty way of lining their bulging pockets with even more taxpayers cash. By sitting on numerous 'advisory' committees, Alberta Tories sitting in the Legislature in Edmonton have found that attending a few extra meetings can be quite lucrative. Criticism of the practice is outlined in a well researched article in the Calgary Sun.

Here is a sample of some of the important committees that Conservative MLA’s need extra money for attending:
-Youth Secretariat
-Advanced Education Committee
-Northern Alberta Development Council
-Court Workers Program Review
-Agenda and Priorities Comm.
-Adv. Education Comm.
-MLA Task Force to launch Rural Development
-Standing Policy Comm.
-Treasury Board
-Committee on Workers Compensation
-Alberta Mental Health Advisory Comm.
-Standing Policy Committee
-Trade and Transportation Committee
-Local Authorities Election Act Review
-Regulatory Review Steering Comm.
-Public Affairs Bureau Review
-Alberta Film Commission
-Council of Status of Persons with Disabilities
-AISH Review Committee
-Endangered Species Conservation Comm.
-P.I. and Security Guard Review
-Healthy Aging and Continuing Care Comm.
-Task Force on Continuing Care Standards
-Alaska-Alberta Bilateral Council
