Pawlowski makes accusations against UCP

Calgary street preacher and leader of the Solidarity Party, Artur Pawlowski made some serious accusations on the steps of the Legislature in Edmonton on Wednesday.
“I’m accusing this government of political bribery,” he begins, claiming he was approached by UCP leader Danielle Smith’s team to give up politics and to stop telling people “what’s really going on” in exchange for the offer to chair the Alberta COVID-19 panel. The job Preston Manning later received. He said he declined because there was “no tangible ability to bring justice and was just a show.” Pawlowski also alleges he was approached by the UCP a few months later when he was the leader of his own independent party and was guaranteed a seat in the legislature if he crossed the floor, which he says he also declined. He also claims he does not know who leaked his phone conversation with Premier Smith.
In a statement, the UCP said Smith is not aware of any conversations or alleged offers referenced by Mr. Pawlowski in his comments today and strongly questions the credibility of his claims.
