This Week In Alberta:

  • Today the Alberta government will unveil its master plan for rebooting the Alberta economy. Unfortunately, proven measures like tax relief and regulatory reform don't seem to be at the forefront of this plan. Instead, early indicators are that the government plans to revert back to the NDP's plan of over-taxing all businesses in order to hand out subsidies to a handful of the most politically-connected businesses - classic crony capitalism.

  • Bill 30 (the Health Statutes Amendment Act), Bill 31 (Environmental Protection Statutes Amendment Act) and Tany Yao's private member's bill, Bill 204 (Voluntary Blood Donations Repeal Act) will be introduced this week.

  • There are also ten previously-introduced bills at various stages of the legislative process, many of which will be debated this week.
