"I am extremely appalled, surprised and completely enraged by this decision," Stier said. It is outrageous that this late in the stage of the construction process that the PCs are pulling the rug on this project It makes no sense after they have been boasting about this project for five years, with PC college funds announced last month and now they are cutting the project. This is the more of the same old PC government, failing to prioritize their resources and now because of their sloppy mismanagement a training centre promised to the residents of southern Alberta is being cut."
"We’re beginning to see more of a pattern here where the PCs are beginning to realize what a deep fiscal hole they are in as a result of their out of control spending habits on things like corporate welfare, AHS expense allowances and patronage postings for PC insiders."
"This government cannot be trusted to keep their promises and now seem to be targeting opposition ridings directly for savings."
In a follow-up phone interview Stier said "Our (Wildrose) caucus has been in furious communication all afternoon, and we will be bringing them (the Government) to task on this big time."
