Wildrose MLA grills civil servants on political ties

A Wildrose MLA complained Tuesday about political messaging from the non-partisan civil service and questioned government employees on their political affiliation.

At a public accounts committee meeting at the Federal Building, Wildrose MLA Derek Fildebrandt grilled Corey Hogan, the managing director of the public affairs bureau, about the political ties of his colleagues.

Hogan was in the gallery at the meeting, but was invited to join the members at the committee table after Fildebrandt realized no one was representing the public affairs bureau.
