As Albertans and Canadians we have developed a society that has deeply held beliefs in the importance of caring for others and cooperating to improve our lives. One way we express these values is by building institutions that can help us achieve these goals. Institutions such as Medicare, the CBC, unions and our system of public education, to name just a few, are a part of our history and culture. How then do we ensure young people today and tomorrow learn about OUR history, culture and values?Read more

WHAT IS HAPPENING?
The new Government of Alberta – following through on an election promise – has appointed a Royalty Review Panel to ensure Albertans get a fair price for their resources. As part of the review process the panel is encouraging Albertans to visit letstalkroyalties.ca where they can answer questions, submit comments, and engage with the panel. Working people have an enormous stake in these discussions. This is our opportunity to encourage the government to negotiate on our behalf to get the best possible framework for Albertans. We may never have another chance again, as panel chair Dave Mowat is on record saying that “we might never have another royalty review again.”
Riding-by-riding poll conducted by major national polling firm paints grim picture for majority of Edmontonians who want a change of government
It is clear Alberta is facing a challenging fiscal landscape. But the problem has much more to do with revenue than spending.
Past Progressive Conservative governments have been entirely unwilling to examine the revenue side of the ledger, which always put public service cuts squarely at the centre of the agenda. Alberta has had a long history of justifying cuts to public services. Whether it is zero-based budgeting initiatives or discussions about “trimming non-essential services,” the narrative has not been whether we will cut, but how much?
The new Government of Alberta has a critical task ahead as it attempts to turn the page on decades of austerity. Since being elected four months ago, it has made considerable progress in raising new revenues needed to support public programs and services. However, given Alberta’s continued reliance on high commodity prices, much remains to be done as Minister Ceci now anticipates a record budget deficit of at least $5.9 billion.
By eroding tax fairness, past governments have placed the new government in an extremely difficult position as it asserts the need to maintain public services and staff levels, while addressing serious revenue shortfalls.Read more
