Good news/bad news: Lethbridge Herald, Saturday, Feb. 8, Business page. Canadian economy adds 34,500 jobs in January; Alberta’s fell by 18,900. It won’t take a climate-change scientist to tell us which is which!
Question: Where are the expected jobs that were to be fuelled by the UCP tax cuts to big business?
Not working as planned, eh! No surprise there; the trickle-down effect is a figment of bad governance. Now injury added to insult, the UCP is going to nickel and dime Alberta workers, communities and teaching institutions to their knees.
UCP Fantasia 101 … tax cuts = job/wage cuts. Question: How will this get us out of debt? Revenue is the only thing that works. Get on with it!
In my opinion, the end result is that nothing good comes from the old or the new Conservative party. It’s too bad the majority of Albertans haven’t figured out that this party, when in government, only thrives during a boom scenario.
Looks like a long wait, Alberta. Hurry up with that pipeline!
