Time for Premier Klein's government to disclose expenses 

The following letter appeared in the April 13th Edmonton Journal and was sent to Ralph's World for posting. For other stories related to expense accounts and Tory Ministers click here.

Prime Minister Paul Martin must be commended for imposing his government's expense-disclosure policy in the mandatory releasing of expense accounts for Cabinet Ministers and top civil servants as part of his government's various accountability policies to Canadian taxpayers.

It has been many years since the Alberta government did likewise for all MLAs with the government' annual reports, which was discontinued by the current government several years ago for reasons not fully shared with Alberta taxpayers.

Now is the time for Premier Klein to show similar accountability to Alberta taxpayers by also introducing a policy for mandatory annual public release of expense accounts not only for all MLAs but also for Alberta's top civil servants.
