Defeat this budget, defeat Prentice

Alberta is the last to join the “Have Not” provinces. Why?

Dear Editor,

Alberta is the last to join the “Have Not” provinces. Why?

Albertans will no longer have to pay equalization payments. The Progressive Conservative Party put Albertans billions of dollars in debt.

Albertans paid $18.9 billion in equalization payments in 2011 (latest stats from Finance Alberta). That is $5,012 per person, or  for families of four $20,048. What family couldn’t use that money now?

With $19 billion a year, Albertans will have no increase in taxes and money to spare, if Dictator Prentice and his spendaholic government are defeated in the “budget” election.

Dictator Prentice is relying on you non-voters to stay home. He has already proven he is willing to pay taxpayers dollars ($27 million) on an illegal election.

Defeat this budget. Vote against the Conservative Party.
