What a difference a year makes.

Ed Stelmach, February 23rd, 2008 (During the election campaign)

“A Progressive Conservative government will never put Alberta back into a deficit position,” said Stelmach. “We have a plan that provides the services and infrastructure to Albertans, while keeping more money in the pockets of Albertans. Our plan is realistic and achievable. It works for Albertans.”



Then the 2008 budget:



2009

OOPS, we thought it was the right plan for tomorrow.





Do I dare ask, what strength would that be?

  1. A completely deplorable move. Stelmach has effectively undone the progress (and harsh sacrifice) Albertans achieved with the cutbacks and re-balancing of the 1990's. Imagine if Klein/Dinning had taken this route instead of being fiscally responsible? Where would we be?

    We need a fiscal conservative at the helm. Fast.
