3. He promised no cuts to front line services, but he’s cut funding across the board. He's done real damage to education and health care.

Withdrawing from the Canada Pension Plan would cost Alberta $133 Billion.

2. That’s TRIPLE the current provincial debt. Alberta would go from having the lowest debt to among the highest.
