Hon. Thomas Lukaszuk, MLA, Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative, Edmonton-Castledowns
Is this really the right message II be sending II the students of this great province? Appointing Carl Benito, MLA to the education committee, a man who has given less than $10,000.00 of a promised $440,000.00 in salary to youth with an awards banquet through his "Carl Benito Scholastic Awards Of Excellence." A man who says he'd work for a $1.00 a month, plus his gas & meals allowance. This was b/c he'd done "very well" in real estate. I say IV shame on Premier Redford, this quite frankly is an embarrassment of an appointment. I do not know what kind of respect Carl brings to your caucus, he can't even make sure his wife stays an ethical person & lets her fall behind on paying his property tax bills. Whats he going to do with the extra $20,000.00 in committee salary, also not give it to the students?! Reminicent of Stephen Carter!
