How The Federal Budget Impacts Alberta

 

 

The federal government just tabled their budget (finally!).

The headline?

The deficits are alarming, the debt is staggering, and Ottawa clearly has no intention of stopping their intrusions into areas of provincial jurisdictions anytime soon.

In short, bad news for Alberta.

Recall Coming To Alberta

 

 

We just watched Alberta's Minister of Justice Kaycee Madu table Bill 52, The Recall Act, in the Legislature.

That's right, Recall is coming to Alberta!

This is a huge win for Albertans, and for the Alberta Institute.

Budget 2021 Estimates

The Estimates process is the means by which the Alberta Legislature scrutinizes the government's spending.

Cabinet has now tabled their estimated budget for the upcoming fiscal year.

This budget constitutes the Cabinet's best estimate of what this upcoming fiscal year will cost.

After the budget is tabled, each government department will have its spending plans scrutinized by the appropriate Committees through what is referred to as estimates debate.
