Redford under scrutiny for travel costs to attend PC party fundraiser Add to ...

Alberta Premier Alison Redford is facing new accusations she used taxpayer-funded government aircraft to attend a Progressive Conservative party fundraiser.

The Opposition Wildrose says a flight manifest from Oct. 25, 2012, shows Redford and some cabinet ministers flew to Grande Prairie just an hour before a party fundraising dinner.

Redford and other ministers also caught the plane back to Edmonton.

The reason for the visit, according to the manifest, was a meeting with government officials.

Health Minister Fred Horne, who was on the trip, says it was to announce an expansion of the Grande Prairie hospital.

The government put out a news release on the expansion, but there is no evidence of a formal news conference.
