“Getting Alberta Back to Work” includes balanced budget by 2022/23

CALGARY, AB (March 30, 2019): United Conservative leader Jason Kenney released the party’s 2019 election platform, “Getting Alberta Back to Work.”

The plan includes 3 priorities:

  • Get Albertans Back to Work

  • Making Life Better for All Albertans

  • Standing up for Alberta

Within those 3 priorities, United Conservatives have made 5 major commitments:

1) JOB CREATION PLAN

  • Enact a Job Creation Tax Cut that reduces the tax on job creators by 1/3 from 12% to 8% over four years and creates at least 55,000 new full-time jobs

  • Cut red tape on job creators by 1/3 over four years to get Alberta working

  • Pass the Open for Business Act to make it easier for job creators to hire workers

2) REPEAL THE CARBON TAX

  • Bill 1 of a United Conservative government will be the Carbon Tax Repeal Act

  • At $1.4 billion, this will be the largest tax cut in

  • Alberta’s history.

  • We will stop the NDP’s planned 67% increase to the carbon tax, and sue the Trudeau government if it tries to impose a carbon tax on Alberta

3) STAND UP FOR ALBERTA

  • Stand Up for Alberta against Trudeau and foreign funded special interests that are trying to land lock our interests

  • Fight for pipelines and a fair deal for Alberta, including a referendum on equalization payments

4) GET OUR FISCAL HOUSE IN ORDER

Balance the budget in the first term through economic growth and prudent spending without cutting front-line services

5) PROTECT QUALITY HEALTH CARE AND EDUCATION

The platform leads to a balanced budget by 2022/23. The economic forecasts have been confirmed and validated by Stokes Economics, the same firm used to providing forecasting for the Government of Alberta.
