https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/edmonton-councillor-jon-dziadyk-mba-degree-1.5009035

Quote

The first-term councillor said he's paying 35 per cent of the tuition — about $23,000 — and using his ward budget to cover the rest — about $44,000.

Every councillor gets a $188,718 ward budget to use as he or she sees fit for the job. The bulk of the money goes toward paying staff and executive assistants. But other expenses include travel, communications such as cellphones and promotional items, such as gift cards, hosting dinners and lunches.

The ward budget is in addition to councillors' salary of $113,325 in 2018.

Good on the guy for disclosing his expenditures publicly, but I can see how spending over $40K of a publicly funded budget on personal academics would ruffle the feathers of taxpayers.

Id say dead politician walking but its the 2k's.

Heck even 20 years ago a drunk premier got away with yelling at the unemployed.

bezos has balls. The gist of this story is that after the Enquirer posted text messages about Bezos having an affair, Bezos hired an investigator to learn how they got his texts and whether their reporting was politically motivated. 

As we know Enquirer did Trumps dirty work. In response to Bezos investigation, the Enquirer, in writing, tried to blackmail him by threatening to publish intimate photos.

Moronic. Just let security do their jobs. 

Up in Thompson at the Liquor Mart they have 2 - 3 security guards right at the entrance with a large amount of pictures of people now allowed to enter.  They seem to do the job efficiently despite having a dozen or so people lingering outside wanting to get the booze.

So when you steal a bottle from the LC whole security watches helplessly you can no longer go to the library with it because security will be tighter.

Yup, you gotta go drink it in a Cityplace bathroom or the library parkade first.
