What a disaster.
The Redford PCs just released the 2014 budget and it’s not pretty. It is the sixth straight deficit for Alberta. And even more debt is on the horizon.
In a year where we are posting record revenues, the PCs have a deficit that will cost Albertans $2.7 billion. What’s worse, Albertans will be on the hook for $21 billion in debt by 2016.
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.
Send the Redford PCs a clear message: Saddling future generations with billions of dollars in debt is just wrong.
