A Review of the 2017 Alberta Budget

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 $8,000 a year to live on.

The link to my full review of the budget is here.
