Health Minister Fred Horne says that the Redford government did not know about Merali's Ontario e-health issues before hiring him to be in charge of all of Alberta's money as controller, Finance Minister Doug Horner says that they were aware, and Premier Redford seems unaware that her government even hired him!
Not exactly confidence inspiring is it. And just think, only 4 more years to go before the next election.
It should be noted that Alberta Health Services was aware of the Ontario e-health issues ( but it oddly enough not his previous AHS expense account shenanigans) when they hired him to be their CFO but did not care because they believed that this time it would be different. That sounds a lot like many people who voted PC in the last election and as with AHS, also wrong.
