The resignation of Premier Alison Redford confirms that the Progressive Conservative Party is bent on its own destruction.
The seeds of discontent were sown during the past two leadership races, when the third-place candidate during the first round of voting slipped up the middle to victory on the backs of the two favoured candidates.
Thus mediocrity in leadership has hastened the demise of this once proud party.
Thus, once again, the people of Alberta shall be “paying the piper” for a political party’s blunder in the guise of good governance.
Past mistakes have seen Albertans pay hefty severance packages to civil servants in the health-care system.
Now with the party-led resignation (dismissal) of the premier, the taxpayers are stuck with a million-dollar severance package for her staff.
This should not be. The PC Party created this mess — the PC Party should be responsible for the premier’s staff termination packages. Not the people of Alberta.
