Why not just hold the line on spending?

The largest problem we face are social programs and the financial burden that they carry. Public healthcare takes up a huge amount of public money. That's just one program.

The only way to gain more revenue is mostly by taxation and fees. We know we can't increase royalties. They're on par.

The AB NDP also had a plan for public finances during the election campaign. I think it was tossed out at the first budget. Not sure I really trust anything that they say anymore regarding money. (I don't even think they care about public debt.)

I'm not against the carbon tax, I'm against the AB NDP model of 'take from here and give to here.' The personal exemption amount for taxes should have been increased to offset OR income tax rates should have fallen to offset.

The poor should get no free pass to pollute.
