Podcast episode with Franco Terrazzano of the Canadian Taxpayer’s Federation

The fiscal update from the Alberta government was terrifying as we embrace over $100 billion in debt. There has never been a deficit this large in Alberta’s entire history and there is no sign yet that it will be getting better any time soon.

Not all of this can be blamed on the pandemic. Alberta was heading into another big deficit well before we ever even heard of COVID-19.

Franco Terrazzano of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation and I discuss how we got into this mess and more importantly, what we will have to do to get out of it.

Alberta got debt free before and we can do it again.

When will we see a leader with the will and fortitude to do it though

  1. Thank you Cory and Franco! We need to have a conversation about Bill 32 and the destruction of tax revenue. Inflation can be hidden under massive wage loss.

    Lower incomes equals weakened purchasing power.

  2. Unions are not enough fellas… 30% Union wage cut/public sector = a small dent in the deficit (380 to 420 million annually).

    We have to remove massive agencies, civil societies, committees and managers.

    10 billion can be taken from wages + positions + major government bloat in comittees, civil societies and organizations attached to gov.

    Ralph left front line workers for last ( the small portion of the cost).

    Willing to show you both the Data. We need a 10 BILLION DOLLAR GOVERNMENT OVERHAUL.
