They were just audited, told to justify their $20mil budget and focus on the local economy.

Maybe we should be talking more about this story.

How much does EEDC actually do for the Capital Region? We keep on talking about businesses or lack there of and i thought this "body" was supposed to do something to help on that front. I use the word help loosely as i admit i don't know much about EEDC.
One of Edmonton's largest industries is the provincial civil service. If you think its a waste for anyone to fly first class or stay at first class hotels in London to attract investment to Alberta, then don't be surprised when airlines that require 20-30 first class flyers skip over YEG-Europe.

The WS Dreamliners, with one of the smallest first class cabins, can't make YEG-LON work without Premium cabin being filled despite the economy cabins near oversell.

Downtown Calgary accepts that executives routinely go to Europe, London global banking city in particular. I have 2 executives in London this week and they will probably be back in London in January. We are actively seeking $200 million equity for a new venture.

I'm sure you would be fine when the NDP was in power if they did the same thing right? We all know the answer to that. It's a bit of a reach to compare private companies flying executives to government who says there broke flying them..but I get it your a UCP cheerleader and will support them no matter what

Are you serious....what a joke of a post.

BTW, the Calgary Sun (yes the Sun) was very critical of the way the UCP is behaving including the travel expenses.

As an executive who used to travel extensively overseas, I don't think the expenses were out of line. But makes no sense to turn this into a Edmonton (NDP) vs Calgary (UCP) thing. Frankly, you made a fool out of yourself.
