Minister of Municipal Affairs Doug Griffith in a letter to Linda Sloan, President of the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association: (From Global News)
"Please be advised that as a result of your comments in the media, neither I nor any of my Cabinet or Caucus colleagues, will be attending the AUMA breakfast on February 16th, 2012."
"You have chosen to make false accusations in the newspaper while claiming you want to work together. This situation can be remedied if you publicly apologize and retract your erroneous statement."

Wow, and on the same day that they announce that there will be an anti-bullying week in Alberta.
Note how the letter is cc'ed to all AUMA members and ALL municipalities. Talk about trying to send a message.
The Premiers Chief of Staff comments: "Let's be clear, Linda Sloan didn't just criticize the budget, she lied. Maliciously. #ableg #AUMA"
Media: Miffed Tories play guess who is not coming to breakfast.
