EDMONTON -- Alberta's opposition parties aren't impressed with partisan Tweets sent out by Premier Alison Redford's communications staff last week.

Alberta NDP Leader Brian Mason said tweets like the meme posted by @ABPremierComms, depicting a sinister-looking Wildrose Party Leader Danielle Smith against a red background, are inappropriate and a waste of taxpayers' money.

"I think that the premier's office spends way too much time focusing on the opposition and not enough time on governing the province well," Mason said. "If the premier's priority was actually trying to do a good job, she wouldn't have to worry about the opposition so much."

The meme alleged Smith has flip-flopped on the issue of MLA pay, after Redford announced the provincial government would freeze MLA salaries.
