Lethbridge donated money to PC Party

Wildrose Alliance wants investigation

Alberta’s Wildrose Alliance Party is calling for an investigation into all of the province’s post-secondary schools after learning that the University of Lethbridge reimbursed staff who attended Progressive Conservative Party dinners and golf tournaments in 2004 and 2005. The reimbursements cost the school $15,000. Lethbridge officials say they weren’t aware until 2005 of a new law that came into effect in 2004 that outlawed such payments. “As soon as we were notified by the auditor general’s office, we at the very next meeting passed new policy to comply with the legislation,” Bob Turner, chair of the board of governors told the Calgary Herald.
