EDMONTON - Alberta's Wildrose party has once again managed to irritate Premier Alison Redford's government with another tongue-in-cheek publicity stunt.

Wildrose members have been walking around the legislature putting up signs mocking Redford's Building Alberta signs, which the Wildrose calls vanity advertising for Redford's party purchased at taxpayer expense.

Signs in the legislature washrooms remind users that Redford is also Building Alberta by replacing urinal pucks and buying toilet paper.

Others remind staff that putting up Christmas lights, replacing light bulbs, moving dirt, shovelling snow and even just the act of putting up "Building Alberta" signs are also building Alberta.

Redford's spokesman Stefan Baranski took to Twitter to call the signs "childish."

In the past, the Wildrose party has drawn attention to Redford's absences in the legislature by putting up Wanted posters, and has mocked a provincial alternative measures sentencing program by handing out get-out-of-jail-free coupons.
