Money used on pension plan campaign could have been better spent

By Lethbridge Herald on October 20, 2023.


You can imagine my surprise upon getting our Herald Friday morning, Oct. 6 with the front page blackened, courtesy of our Provincial government – and disrespecting our federal government – “Tell the Feds.”

 Then, to turn the page and find another full black page. 

 My question to our premier is this: what was the cost of this campaign?  I would guess that the black was shared in more newspapers than just ours.  How does the provincial government justify this spending?

I wonder if this money would be better spent to support our children’s education?  Ifeel this is just another “black” mark on the UCP.

In the 203-2024 school year Alberta will spend 8.8 BILLION on education for students in kindergarten to Grade 12 the equivalent of 44 MILLION for every day students are in school an increase of of more than 5 percent. Think the problem isn’t money. The problem is how its spent, of which, teachers have little to no say. An Alberta school division running 4600 students has a Supt and 3 Vice Supt. Maybe that could be an issue.
