STATEMENT ON LAUNCH OF BUDGET 2021 CONSULTATIONS
LETHBRIDGE – The following statement can be attributed to Alberta NDP Finance Critic Shannon Phillips in response to the UCP government’s launch of Budget 2021 consultation sessions:
“Albertans from all walks of life, across all industries and regions, have good ideas for growing our economy and solving our fiscal challenges. The UCP is listening to none of them.
“Instead, Jason Kenney is pursuing his own ideological agenda of firing thousands of frontline health workers, ripping benefits away from Albertans with disabilities, closing parks, hiking car insurance, and cutting funding to kids in school just to pay for his failed $4.7-billion-dollar corporate handout.
“Rachel Notley and our entire NDP Caucus are listening to Albertans and working with people on all sides of the political spectrum to build a concrete plan that will grow our economy into the future. The people of this province are its greatest advantage and they deserve a real plan for their future.”
