This much debt means that Alberta taxpayers will be paying $820 million a year in interest payments alone. That’s $820 million that won’t be used for education, health care, or policing.
In what has become standard PC practice, they continue to try and hide the size of their debt and deficit from Albertans who will have to eventually pay the tab. The PCs will turn to every dirty trick they can. Whether that’s negative campaigning, using your tax dollars to campaign, or hiding the truth about Alberta’s debt.
