Last week, Alberta's Finance Minister, Joe Ceci, gave an update on the state of the province's finances. With the ever-swelling deficit now expected to reach $11 billion, business leaders including George Gosbee, Chairman & CEO of AltaCorp Capital, Alt-Governor & Co-Owner of the Arizona Coyotes gave the government a failing grade on their handling of the province's economy.
It's no wonder people are saying it - per person Alberta's deficit exceeds even Ontario's worst budget at the height of the 2008 recession.
Since the NDP came to power, hundreds of Albertans have lost their jobs every single day. The NDP has done everything it has to discourage investment creating uncertainty at every turn. Their only solution to the tanking economy is picking winners and losers through corporate welfare as we are seeing with their approach to Alberta's breweries.
If their mandate extends beyond the next election, Alberta will be irreversibly changed. The free-market engine of confederation reduced to just another debt-ridden province.
We can't let the NDP have any shot at forming another government. Conservatives must have one political voice before the next election.
We hope you have signed our petition to encourage the parties to unify. We strongly encourage you to sign up your family and friends to our cause as well. We simply cannot gamble with Alberta's future.
