Ten things to know about the 2019-20 Alberta budget
I’ve just written a ‘top 10’ overview of the recent Alberta budget. Points raised in the post include the following:
-The budget lays out a four-year strategy of spending cuts, letting population growth and inflation do much of the heavy lifting.
-After one accounts for both population growth and inflation, annual provincial spending in Alberta by 2022 is projected to be 16.2% lower than it was last year.
-Alberta remains Canada’s lowest-taxed province. It also remains the only province without a provincial sales tax.
