Alberta’s auditor general Merwan Saher has found that Alison Redford and her office inappropriately used government resources while she was premier.
That includes booking false passengers on government flights, and the personal benefit of taking her daughter on flights as well.
In the report, a flight to Grande Prairie for the Northern Alberta Leader’s Dinner on October 25, 2012 was found to not have been for business purposes.
He also noted that she was planning to convert a public space in a building into a private living space.
Saher explains there there seemed to be a perception that her office’s influence should not be questioned.
Interim Premier Dave Hancock has asked RCMP to investigate her expenses.
In a release this morning, he said Albertans trust government officials to put the public’s interest ahead of their own, and that that trust has been broken.
