Alberta isn’t actually subsidizing pensions in the rest of Canada, because the Government of Alberta doesn’t pay into the Canada Pension Plan, individual Albertans do.
APP Fact 2
Everyone knows the Alberta government doesn’t pay into the Canada Pension Plan.
When we say “Alberta subsidizes the Canadian Pension Plan”, this is just short-hand for “the people of Alberta subsidize the Canadian Pension Plan”.
Those making this argument are just intentionally playing word games to muddy the waters.
It’s like saying that the Edmonton Oilers didn’t score a goal, an Edmonton Oilers player scored a goal, or saying that Dell doesn’t make laptops, Dell employees make laptops.
