UCP targeting rural taxpayers - 2019-12-27
Jason Kenney is raising your taxes and he's hoping you won't even know it's him.
It's a shocking betrayal of his central campaign promise, and it's made even worse by his targeting of rural taxpayers.
Doug Schweitzer, the Minister of Justice, has announced plans to force municipalities to pay for the police officers he promised you by collecting an additional $200 million from communities with populations under 5,000.
The bait-and-switch here is that he promised the province would provide 500 new officers; instead, municipalities will be paying for 300 and the government of Alberta will offer not one new red cent.
