RESPECT FOR ALL ALBERTANS
In 2014, Alberta Liberals proposed that all schools be required to allow students to form ‘gay-straight alliances’, which are proven to provide a safer environment for the entire student population. The PC government flip-flopped. This issue has shown Alberta that Mr. Prentice dithers. This policy is an example of the progressive, forward thinking policies brought forward by Alberta Liberal MLAs. You can trust the Alberta Liberal Party to lead on progressive, forward thinking issues.
Equal pay for work of equal value
Improve vaccination rates
Protections for paid farm workers
INVEST IN FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES
More than 80 per cent of Albertans live in urban areas. Alberta Liberals recognize the unique needs of cities big and small and believe that thriving, properly financed municipalities benefit all Albertans.
Improve health care access
Dignity for seniors
Alberta’s current fiscal situation is grounded in volatile oil prices, but our future lies in a knowledge-based economy, too. An effectively funded public education system is the greatest investment society can make to ensure a strong, prosperous future for all Albertans.
Excellence in education
Child care spaces
Arts and culture
Support of charities and voluntary sector
LEADERSHIP YOU CAN TRUST
The Alberta Liberal Party proudly occupies the moderate and sensible centre. While the other parties are beholden to special interest groups – and have a hidden agenda – we represent all hard-working Albertan families. It’s time for our government to support families and small business, diversify our economy and expand our markets worldwide.
Support for entrepreneurs
The Enbridge and Keystone XL pipeline debates have taught us that pipelines will not get built until we clean up our environmental reputation.
Eliminate wasteful spending and fix the broken revenue structure. The Alberta Liberal Fair Tax Plan will quickly return us to balanced budgets and will:
1. Introduce a progressive personal income tax system
2. Corporate tax adjustment (small business tax elimination)
Alberta Liberals will eliminate the taxes paid by small businesses earning under $500,000 and increase government revenue through a 2 per cent adjustment in the amount of tax paid by large corporations. The total increase is $302.2 million in corporate tax revenue, including the elimination of small business tax.
3. Enhance corporate tax collection
4. Reinvest Carbon Capture and Storage funds
