After only 13 months of an Alison Redford government: Alberta is headed back into debt.
This is not what we were promised by Redford and her Progressive, but no longer Conservative, Party. The budget was promised to be balanced next year and Alberta was to be running surpluses the following years.
Neither of these are going to happen. It is another in a long line of broken promises from Redford.
The budget is already blown and taking on debt because the 40+ billion dollars that our government takes in as revenue per year is not freaking enough is asinine. If the PC's can't balance a budget now, with the best economy in the country, when will we EVER be able to?
have gone from being "paid in full" under Klein, with $30 a barrel oil
to being back into debt under Alison Redford with $85 a barrel oil. This

Albertan's were duped.
Is this what you voted for?
Don Braid: It is very odd, and more than a little sad, that Ralph Klein’s fiscal
legacy officially ended just three days before the ailing ex-Premier

speech to her PC Party convention, told reporters:
“If everything we do right now is funded fully with cash in the bank, then we are never going to build anything more in this province.”
