We are raising funds to help ease the sudden unemployment of Wrp staff due to the floor crossing of Wrp mlas less than ten days to Christmas. 4 of these employees are to be parents in a few months. All support greatly appreciated. Merry Christmas

Thanks for your donations. We put together a list of people that were most impacted by consulting with current and former staff over the past few days. The recommendations we received came from senior staff (and former senior staff) in the party, which three of us have independently compared notes on to find the most fair and equitable way of disbursing funds.

We will be providing a full accounting of how much was donated, but in the interest of the recipients' privacy won't be releasing names. These people have been through a lot, and we've not required that their names be published as part of receiving funds, so at this point it'd a violation of their privacy to do so. Rather than put them on display we're hoping to be genuinely thankful for their work by delivering these donations without them feeling beholden to donors or paraded around. That being said there are some conditions:

1) Recipients are welcome to thank the donors. Privacy is for their benefit, it's not a requirement.
2) The recipients can of course decline the donation.
3) If the recipients find immediate and equal employment we'd ask they donate the money to a worthy cause.
We want to be as transparent as possible. Every penny will be accounted for in a follow-up. We're distributing funds equally up to 11 people, including those currently laid-off who will receive funds immediately, and those we expect are at immediate risk that we'll re-evaluate in January. If we've over-estimated we'll divide the remainder among those laid-off. Our primary list is unemployed staff, but we've also been recommended a short list of some who are now seriously underemployed. Preference is to those laid-off, but in the spirit of these donations we want to ensure no one's left suffering.

Please don't hesitate to email if you have further questions.

We did it guys!! Thank you all so much for helping us reach our goal. I'm simply awed and grateful with the support, but like myself we knew we had to try to right a wrong. Thank you again to all those who donated.

Jerry, what makes this a special circumstance is that Danielle Smith and her traitorous MLAs were directly responsible for blind-siding these employees. I certainly hope the former leader of the Wildrose Party contributes to this fund. I'll make sure to forward her the link.

This is what conservatism looks like. There have been many other times when the Wild Rose has taken a body punch and got up - the 2013 Calgary Stampede, the High River floods, etc. We help those who need a hand up - especially when they've been sideswiped by misfortune and trouble they did not create. It's who we are.

Puts the PCAA in perspective. It's all about winning at all costs no matter who is hurt in the process. Totally callous but not unexpected. I prefer to lose and not leave anyone behind.

Jerry, these are not politicians, these are office workers. And human beings being taken care of by other human beings. If you don't like it, don't donate.

As a fiscally conservative, socially liberal, political reformer, I'm am disappointed in the selfishness demonstrated by these members without consulting the riding they represent. Back room deals help no one but those doing the deal and have no place in a representative democracy. Cory G. Litzenberger President & Founder CGL Strategic Business & Tax Advisors - CGLtax.ca

To the staff that did so much. You were the reason the Wildrose MLA's were such an effective opposition. A merry Christmas to you all, and I am sure that the new year will bring new opportunities for you all.
