According to the Edmonton Journal, Alberta's taxpayers picked up the tab for several expensive business trips to London by one of Premier Kenney's "closest advisers."

David Knight-Legg, Kenney's Oxford educated adviser on trade, has paid four visits to jolly old England since the United Conservative Party formed government, in April — spending $18,000 on hotels, airfare and dining costs in London alone.

All told, the former head of Kenney's transition team managed to spend $45,000 of public money on travel, while collecting a $194,253 paycheck, all while the government imposed deep cuts to services and attacked public sector wages.
