NO END IN SIGHT FOR LOCKDOWNS / NO MEANINGFUL RECOVERY PLAN
February 26, 2021 – Calgary, Alberta
The UCP’s 2021 budget for Alberta is pandering to the socialist agenda. They have essentially told Alberta that we will be stuck in “pandemic” mode for quite some time. There are no new ideas for keeping our seniors and vulnerable population safe and no plan to save the EXISTING small businesses that are being destroyed with their weak policies. At the end of the day, Kenney’s UCP government will only cater to their federalist counterparts’ wishes. They are not here for Alberta.
This budget guarantees the destruction of Alberta as indiscriminate spending continues in perpetuity. The health care budget does not address any real solutions to protecting the care homes and their job creation plan does not consider the people who have been financially destroyed by this pandemic. What about anyone who is over 50 who has lost their job? What about our Alberta small/medium business that are shutting their doors? There is no significant plan in the budget to protect people who have been the foundation of Alberta’s growth.
It is time to call on this government to end these lockdowns and come up with a real plan that protects our vulnerable and gets hardworking Albertans back to business!
ALBERTA STRONG! DISCOVER YOUR INDEPENDENCE!
