A Review of the 2017 Alberta Budget

Summary:
Over at the web site of the Calgary Homeless Foundation, I’ve written a review of the recent Alberta budget. Points I make in the blog post include the following: -Alberta remains the lowest-taxed province in Canada. -Alberta’s net debt-to-GDP ratio remains the lowest in Canada. -For the third consecutive year, the Rachel Notley government announced a tuition freeze for (domestic) post-secondary students. -No major changes were announced to social assistance benefit levels. Thus, a “single employable” adult on social assistance in Alberta will continue to get approximately ,000 a year to live on. The link to my full review of the budget is here. Enjoy and share:
