are all Calgarians crapping their pants or what? this has to be the biggest change in policy i have encountered in the past few decades. minimum wage hike to $15 from $10.20 by 2018 during a recession or at least a very slow growth environment. wow. small business is going to get killed. i’m all for uniform minimum wage hikes but slow and steady and when appropriate. i would not want to be an Albertan for the next 4 years! Vive l’Ontario!
also, no more coal power. no more pipelines. possible carbon taxes. higher corporate taxes. higher income taxes for upper income brackets. possible higher royalty rates. geez. how did the electorate go from pro business to extremely anti-business in 12 months?
