Payout shows PCs haven’t learned

It’s hard to be civil at times when you read what goes on in politics. Former Alberta Health Services chief financial officer Allaudin Merali listed as “terminated without cause” is a sick joke.

Former Alberta Health Services chief financial officer Allaudin Merali listed as “terminated without cause” is a sick joke.

Have all our politicians and bureaucrats any marbles to operate with? Using public money on himself and spending lavishly should be enough to get anyone fired with cause.

I feel that this classification was given to Merali so he could get the $900,000 payout that he doesn’t deserve. Before this happened, what morons made up this crazy ridiculous contract?

Then Wildrose critic Heather Forsyth says it’s time to close the book on this chapter.


I agree that it’s time to move forward but also time to go back to the decision of who hired this man when his record in Ontario was available.

It would also be nice to know who classified Merali as being “terminated without cause.”

Both of these yokels should be fired.

Just look at that expense account: $370,000 in questionable expenses. This man’s actions are a bunch of doggie doo doo and we are going to let him get away with it.

I thought when Jim Prentice came to be premier of Alberta, this nonsense would stop. Surprise, surprise— same old, same old. Just watch, Prentice may try to revive the Golden Palace and blame it on Alison Redford.

I know this suggestion won’t do much good, but I would like to see Albertans flood the Internet with their anger and the MLA with emails and faxes and keep the heat on until they get the message. Not just your local MLA but all Alberta MLAs. Send them the message over and over, and over along with comments on social media.

As I said earlier, same old same old — just buy a bigger rug to sweep the dirt under it or get a cleaner to clean the existing one up.

We get what we vote for.

A real disgruntled ex-Progressive Conservative member, and no longer a member of any party.
