The UCP are again being accused of mismanaging taxpayer dollars. The NDP claims the UCP spent thousands on a high-level provincial staffer's travel, amounting to what the opposition is calling a "life of luxury."

On Wednesday, NDP critic for democracy and ethics, Heather Sweet, said that the NDP had obtained invoices that show Premier Jason Kenney's principal advisor David Knight Legg had billed over $45,000 in expenses over a six-month period, including $18,000 in relation to four recent trips to London.

"While he was in London, Mr. Knight Legg stayed in five-star hotels," said Sweet.
