The westward migration of Central Canada-based political operatives continues.

Controversial former Ottawa Conservative staffer Sébastien Togneri is now employed as the Caucus Whip Coordinator for Danielle Smith‘s Wildrose Official Opposition.

Political watchers may remember Mr. Togneri as the aide to federal Conservative cabinet minister Christian Paradis who, in 2010, resigned over his alleged meddling in at least four different access-to-information requests.

While still under RCMP investigation, Mr. Togneri was spotted briefly working for the campaign of Edmonton-Strathcona Conservative candidate Ryan Hastman in the 2011 election.

Also recently migrated to Alberta is Mike Feenstra, who was previously employed as spokesperson for Ontario’s Liberal Minister of Natural Resources and Minister of Education. Mr. Feenstra is now employed as the Press Secretary in Energy Minister Ken Hughes‘ office.
