The panels, which would be comprised of people Kenney calls "eminent Albertans," would travel the province and hold public town halls.

The budget presented by Premier Jason Kenney and the UCP will force every single Albertan to pay for his $4.7-billion no-jobs corporate giveaway.

This budget will extract more in personal income taxes from every Albertan by disconnecting the tax code from inflation. This is a shocking betrayal of Jason Kenney’s central campaign promise.

'This will not be an easy budget': Jason Kenney braces Albertans for government spending cuts

  'This will not be an easy budget': Jason Kenney braces Albertans for government spending cuts EDMONTON — Premier Jason Kenney warned Albertans on Wednesday evening that his government’s budget was going to cut spending, part of the necessary work to reduce government expenditures and turn the economy around. Thursday’s budget would see a nearly three per cent cut, he said. “It will be the most important Alberta budget in 25 years,” Kenney said in a televised suppertime address to the province. “Now, let’s be clear: this will not be an easy budget.

Jason Kenney promised his supporters that if he were to become premier of Alberta, he’d fight back But it’s the revenue side that really needs the help, and Albertans need to stop hoping for another oil Even Rachel Notley ’s government, which wasn’t exactly averse to raising or implementing taxes

Corporate handouts are not the Tennessee Way. Add my name to help stop these handouts now: Thank you for signing up to receive updates. The reason Tennessee should continue to give little—or, even better, outright eliminate these programs—is because film incentives have been shown

The Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation blasted the move as a “hidden, sneaky tax.” Jason Kenney himself denounced this technique as a tax increase when he led the CTF. It’s a sneaky tax that will pull $600 million out of individual Albertans’ pockets.

And then there are the cuts.

All Albertans will pay more to register their cars and campers, more for home and car insurance, electricity, school fees, even visits to provincial museums.

Students will see their tuition costs skyrocket by 21 per cent over three years, and their parents won’t be able to apply those costs against their taxes anymore. That’s a tax increase.

More than 46,000 older Albertans will be kicked off the Seniors Drug Benefit Program, and income testing will be introduced for those who stay through that first purge. Those are families on fixed incomes that will have to find the money elsewhere to pay for the medication they need.

Alberta looks to private sector and pipelines to deliver better times

  Alberta looks to private sector and pipelines to deliver better times The Alberta government has built a budget that foresees better times — though it doesn't assume a quick rebound.To use a baseball analogy, he called his shot.

Bill 17 would allow people at risk to find out if their intimate partner has a history of domestic violence. Bill 14 will create a Crown corporation to encourage job-creating investments from Indigenous communities.

Notley said Kenney has not been clear on his spending plans, noting he mused publicly in 2017 about eventually getting Alberta down to per capita spending Kenney has said he would cancel Notley ’s carbon tax if elected and will look at other tax reforms with an eye to having Albertans pay less.

Jason Kenney has also targeted some of the most vulnerable for the deepest cuts.

Severely handicapped Albertans will immediately lose $30 a month in benefits, rising to $120 a month by 2023.

As many as 165,000 families living just above the poverty line will lose part of their child benefits, and 55,000 families will lose them entirely.

Almost $100 million in housing and rental support has also vanished.

There’s no doubt that these decisions will push thousands of Alberta children into poverty, and some families into homelessness.

This budget breaks a range of promises made by Jason Kenney and his government.

He promised education funding would keep pace with a growing student population. Promise broken — this budget provides $200 less for each student than last year.

He promised health spending would keep pace with population growth. Promise broken — this budget takes money out of hospitals, out of our ambulance system, and out of our diagnostic imaging and lab testing system.

Alberta finance minister says diversifying revenues is a long-term 'luxury'

  Alberta finance minister says diversifying revenues is a long-term 'luxury' CALGARY — Alberta's finance minister says the province will have the luxury of diversifying its revenues once its budget is balanced. Travis Toews told a Calgary Chamber of Commerce luncheon that the government should look at ways to become less dependent on volatile oil and natural gas royalties in the long term. But he says the United Conservative government's priority right now is to eliminate the deficit by cutting spending and not raisingTravis Toews told a Calgary Chamber of Commerce luncheon that the government should look at ways to become less dependent on volatile oil and natural gas royalties in the long term.

Kenney has said he would cancel Notley ’s carbon tax if elected and will look at other tax reforms with an eye to having Albertans pay less. His party members have voted to return to a flat tax on income, something Notley replaced with a progressive system, but Kenney has not said if he’ll commit a flat

Our government began the planning work on a badly needed redevelopment of the Red Deer Regional Hospital. Jason Kenney cut all of that planning money, and the hospital work has stopped.

Incredibly, there is no significant new funding for rural police, let alone the 500 new officers he promised. This budget has a one-time $9-million increase — less than the NDP committed to rural crime — and then quickly drops rural police funding to below 2018 levels. In a few months, Jason Kenney will be spending less on rural policing than our government did.

Albertans should not forget that one of Jason Kenney’s first acts as premier was to max out the province’s credit card on a $4.7-billion giveaway to the largest and most profitable corporations. We know this money has already been distributed to corporate shareholders without creating a single job. More than 27,000 Albertans have lost their jobs on Jason Kenney’s watch.

This budget does nothing to get them back to work. Budget 2019 simply forces every Albertan to pay for Kenney’s corporate handout.
