I went to Budget Day at the Alberta Legislature this afternoon. A longer recap will come soon, but some of the highlights in this compassionate budget of the people include:
-38% increase in a subsidy to Alberta’s Horse Racing Industry.
-$400 Million Corporate tax cuts to Alberta Corporations (Who are clearly hurting and in need of a tax cut with $60 barrel oil…)
As well, Finance Minister Shirley McClellan’s speeches are still as boring as dirt.
