Alberta AG releasing report on gov't travel as premier calls for RCMP review

EDMONTON - Alberta's auditor general is scheduled to release his long-awaited report into government travel after a day that saw Alison Redford resign her seat and a call made for RCMP involvement.

Premier Dave Hancock wants the RCMP to review the use of provincial aircraft after Redford, the former premier, resigned her legislature seat amid an ongoing controversy over her travel expenses.

Hancock said the report identifies a number of areas of concern and it is in the public's best interest to have police look into the matter.

A copy of the report leaked to CBC found that passenger lists on government aircraft were altered so that then-premier Redford could fly alone.

She has denied directing her office to make any changes.

Conservative leadership candidate Thomas Lukaszuk (loo-KAZ'-ik) says Albertans need to be reassured that no one is above the law.
