The Liberal scandal of the week. I can't wait to hear REDfords response to this one.
"Lynn Redford, sister of Alberta Premier Alison Redford, attended Progressive Conservative party events at public expense and helped organize an annual Tory barbeque while she was a senior executive at the Calgary Health Region.

Expense-claim records, obtained by CBC News through Freedom of Information, show Redford attended a Conservative party annual general meeting in Edmonton, and several fundraisers, including premier’s dinners and a golf tournament fundraiser for Tory MLA Dave Coutts.
The documents show she attended these functions, all, or in part, at the health region’s expense, claiming fundraiser tickets, travel costs, mileage, hotel rooms and even more than $200 for liquor for a Tory barbeque.
Redford also expensed a breakfast with her sister Alison, a couple months after she was first elected in 2008.
Under Alberta law, it is illegal for publicly-funded institutions, including the Calgary Health Region, to make political donations."http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/ ... ising.html
