Today I stood with Calgarians to talk about how Jason Kenney's bait-and-switch budget will hurt them.

Here's the list we have thus far: <thread>

2/ Calgary Cancer Centre: The UCP budget pushes back funding to build the Calgary Cancer Centre. Proponents say the delay signals a high likelihood the hospital will open short-staffed and under-funded. #abhealth #yychealth #ableg #abbudget
3/ Education Property Tax: Early estimates from the @cityofcalgary show the UCP is withholding $15.5 million in Education Property Tax revenues collected by the province. Mayor @nenshi thinks this will mean property tax increases of more than 1% next year. #yyc #abed #abbudget

This Alberta Budget is a disaster for Indigenous people. On the surface it's a 19% reduction to Indigenous relations. But in reality, because 50% of the budget is flow through money - not government money, the actual cut is 36% to services to Indigenous people. #ableg #abbudget
A complete elimination of the Indigenous Climate Leadership Program. 100% gone. A program that was accessed by all 48 First Nations and all 8 Metis Settlements. It was a clear reflection of Indigenous values on the environment and now its completely gone. #thecostofkenney
And to add injury to injury, I noticed that in the Ministry of Environment and Parks, they reduced the Regional Cumulative Effects Management budget by 40%. So if any Nations are concerned about the effect of development on their land base, there will be no evidence available.
