Opposition New Democrats Accuse Tory Government

Manitoba's Opposition New Democrats are accusing the Tory government of spending a large amount of money on travel for one of its top advisers.

 

The New Democrats say documents obtained under the province's freedom-of-information law show roughly 60-thousand dollars has been spent this year on trips by David McLaughlin, the government's adviser on climate strategy.

The vast majority of the trips have been between Winnipeg and Ottawa, and N-D-P legislature member Andrew Swan says it's not clear what Manitoba has gained from all the travel.

Premier Brian Pallister says McLaughlin is a recognized expert on climate-change strategies and has helped the province prepare its response to the federal government's plan for a carbon tax.
