Letter: Why so many reports on Toews?
Dear Editor, I am surprised at the amount of coverage given to UCP leadership candidate Travis Toews by your newspaper. I believe this is not the first time this has happened.
I am surprised at the extent of coverage given to UCP leadership candidate Travis Toews by your newspaper. I believe this is not the first time this has happened. However, I have not seen the same publicity given to other leadership candidates. If I’m wrong, excuse me, I wouldn’t want to think you’re biased in favor of Mr. Toews.
Nowhere in the article do you mention that Toews was at the Sky Palace with Jason Kenney last year, breaking all the rules the Alberta government imposed on the rest of Albertans but didn’t see fit to follow themselves . I also see no mention of the $227,911 bonus that was awarded to Dr. Deena Hinshaw, making her the highest paid Chief Medical Officer of Health in Canada, surpassing her annual salary of $591,545. Mr. Toews was Minister of Finance at the time.
During one of the leadership debates, it became clear that Mr. Toews has no interest in representing his constituents in the next provincial election unless he is premier. That says a lot about his concern for someone other than himself. From what I’ve read, he’s a nice guy but definitely not top notch material. He is called a Kenney “mini-me”.
