The Fair Deal report released today does nothing to address these real & urgent priorities. THREAD #ableg
Much of what is contained here is far beyond this government’s authority or jurisdiction. 2/ #ableg
The last thing Albertans want, is this Premier’s hands anywhere near their retirement savings.
They’re focused on caring for their loved ones and making sure they get the best our health care system has to offer.
This report does nothing to build a more diversified and stronger economy.
It does nothing to get Albertans back to work. 5/ #ableg
If the Premier was interested in creating fairness, he would ensure Albertans working on the front lines have access to paid sick leave.
He would provide cash support for struggling small businesses. 6/ #ableg
Fairness would mean asking the wealthiest 1% to pay 1% more, instead of forcing additional costs on everyday, hard-hit Albertans.
Like higher property tax, higher income tax, increased school fees, skyrocketing insurance rates to name a few.
Albertans deserve a government that understands that growing inequality is not a jobs plan, and actually hurts our communities.
In all fairness, Albertans deserve better.
