Kenney in hot water for drawing MP salary while running provincial campaign

Federal Conservative MP Jason Kenney is facing a possible ethics probe after his Calgary Midnapore constituents complained to the Ethics Commissioner that Kenney was engaging in provincial politics while still drawing his MP salary.

Kenney is busy running a “unite the Right” truck tour while neglecting his duties as an MP, according to his constituents.

“Kenney can’t have the cake and eat it.” John Miller who resides in the riding of Calgary-Midnapore said. “He either serves as an MP or quits and stop drawing an MP salary. Why should we pay him $12,500 a month over the summer for his road trip?”

Mr. Miller pointed out that according to the House of Commons Procedure and Practice, one of the responsibilites of a Member of Parliament is to solve consituents’ problems.

“The summer recess is a time for Parliamentarians to spend more time with their constituents,” Mr. Miller said. “The MPs in the other ridings are busy talking to the people who elected them, but Mr. Kenney has gone AWOL.”

Meanwhile, an Airdrie, AB resident has launched a petition demanding that that Kenney be stripped of his MP salary while he runs his Alberta PC leadership campaign.

“Jason Kenney is running campaign for provincial politics while sitting as, and collecting a salary as a Member of Parliament,” petitioner Jarrah Elhalabi writes. “Although Mr. Kenney has shown an inability to recognize that using his office to serve the people of his riding does not mean using his position as a platform to pursue his personal interests as ong as he has been an MP, we have, and we demand an end to his final crooked act as a crooked Federal Politician.”

“We are no longer going to subsidize his personal ventures with unethically diverted public funds,” Mr. Elhalabi adds.

“Conflict of interest,” Dawn Anderson, of London, Ontario, wrote in support of the petition. “If you need to take a leave to pursue other career opportunities that’s fine but your salary from your MP job should also be suspended until you are back to the job.”

Kenney was not available for comment.

    I completely support what Jason Kenney is doing. Most of the federal taxes come from Alberta. So he has every right to draw his MP salary while uniting the right in Alberta.

    We need to unite the right to stop the NDP communist cucks from trying to destroy our province by shutting down the oil industry and bringing in Syrian rapefuguess and promoting their LGBTQWERTY agenda and openly supporting Trudeau jihadification of Canada.

    Alberta is a white Christian province, and we need a man who is proud of his white Christianity. In Harper, we had a hero who stood up for whites and Christians. He passed laws to protect us from Indians (both the casino variety and the 7-11 variety), union thugs, Muslims, and environmental terrorists.

    What Canada and Alberta needs is a man like Trump who will call a spade a spade. I believe Kenney will be Alberta’s trump. He is a proud white and a strong Christian. The kind of man we want running our province!

      Umm this is not 1960. Alberta is not a white christian community anymore and the “cucks” you refer too were voted in by a majority of the population. You are part of the problem as to why politicians are so crooked by accepting what he is doing… Go back to school you racist s.o.b…

      Most of the federal taxes do not come from Alberta. Man you guys have been brainwashed. Alberta pays about 15% of the federal revenues (taxes and other incomes) with about 12% of the population.

      He’s a federal MP. He’s working outside his jurisdiction while drawing a salary and he’s not doing his job.

      What part of that don’t you understand, or are you trolling? God, I hope you’re trolling: “He is a proud white and a strong Christian. The kind of man we want running our province!”

        I don’t think he’s trolling. This is Harper/Kenney’s base. Remember Harper’s “old stock Canadian” dog whistle and Kenney’s “people like Nenshi” one?

    The worst part of this is that there is no official PC campaign yet – he’s supposedly running for the PC leadership, right? – and he is not an official candidate, therefore neither his campaign donation soliciting nor campaign spending are falling under Elections Alberta scrutiny.

    We have rules for a reason and that’s to make our elections and politics as fair as they can be. Mr. Kenney apparently doesn’t care about that, so he’s collecting a federal salary while running in a provincial campaign of his own invention and which is not accountable to Albertans.
