I decided to try a new feature here on my blog a few months ago: my most popular social media posts. Well, here’s the 11th instalment:
The UCP government decided that one key to boosting the economy is reducing the tax rate to 8%, 2 years earlier than planned. Except tax cuts don’t create jobs.
Pride should be more than an act of inclusivity; it should be an act of solidarity.
The provincial government recently announced that applications for the Aboriginal Business Investment Fund opened on 29 June. Except they forgot to mention something.
The UCP government released the Alberta’s Recovery Plan this week. One thing highlighted in the recovery plan is capital spending of over $10 billion, “the largest ever capital spend” in Alberta.
The Government of Alberta announced earlier this week that the lieutenant governor approved the recommendation to appoint 3 new persons to sit on the Premier’s Council on the Status of Persons with Disabilities.
Earlier this week, Michels Canada announced that TC Energy had selected it to construct 260 km worth of the Alberta portion of the Keystone XL Pipeline. I want to address a few things in the announcement.
Two days ago, Alberta’s lieutenant governor approved a recommendation from Adriana LaGrange to reduce the mill rates on the education portion of property taxes. A tax reduction seems like a good idea, but there’s something you should know.
The Alberta government held first reading on Bill 26 this week. If passed, it’d allow them to hold referendums.
The provincial government announced yesterday that they were replacing Alberta Utilities Commission chair Mark Kolesar with Carolyn Dahl Rees, who has donated thousands of dollars to the United Conservative Party.
