Premeir Prentice Blames Albertans for Financial Problems

Embedded image permalink

Premier Jim Prentice blames us for the financial problems in Alberta? 
  Premier Jim Prentice says Albertans should “look in the mirror” when it comes to the financial woes now squeezing the province — and defends his decision to reject corporate tax hikes while his government eyes higher levies and deep spending cuts.
Huh?  A new boss and he doesn't even get it.  The problems lie right with the PC government and their mismanagement of the public purse.   They've grown government exponentially, give themselves perks, wasted countless taxpayer money on projects for political gain and he blames us.

Maybe in a way he's right.  We've kept electing them in for the last forty-two years.    


  1. Prentice isn't any different than Red-Ford.

    He's a Liberal in a blue suit.

  2. The PCs have to go there is no doubt of that. Maybe he's directing his statement at the "ordinary" Albertans in the teachers and nurses unions who refuse to any concessions.

  3. Don't blame me I voted Wildrose.

  4. I think his statement is bang on. You cannot have low taxes and high program spending so one or the other has to give. Those on the left likely favour higher taxes while those on the right less program spending so hopefully the debate is about which should be done. I would focus more on program spending although a small HST would not be a bad idea.


This is my home. I hope you respect it. I will not tolerate profanity or anything that is not suitable for family consumption.
