Bonus pay for me, pay cut for you.

Old Fast Eddie's government is into it again, this time over bonuses paid out to the executives at Alberta Health Services. The same AHS that currently is trying to roll back the wages of nurses in Alberta.

They paid millions to pay out contracts, which didn't have to be bought out, for the old health executives, and now AHS has decided to give themselves a little something extra as a bonus for what has to be very dubious results. Been to a hospital in Alberta lately?

But yet the government came out and defended the bonuses.

Is anyone surprised?

Same thing in Ontario with sunshine clause. Pay was awarded from other sources.

I only know 1 source and that is the taxpayer.

The Conservative Party is only able to balance the province's books when there is huge oil windfalls. Otherwise, these guys are incompetent boobs. Decades of oil windfalls and nothing to show for it. (other than using the money to but Tory election victories). This province is spectacularly poorly run.

Wildrose Alliance is the only alternative. Hopefully, they will balance the books. We can't keep going on like this.
