In power, the NDP jacked up taxes by 20 per cent on job creators just as Alberta faced major economic headwinds.

The result? 

Less revenue for the government as investment fled. 

Less investment in Alberta.

And less jobs. 

It’s no surprise after our Job Creation Tax Cut that they want to raise taxes on Alberat’s job creators once again, but what is completely irresponsible is their constant lies about its cost.

If you follow Rachel Notley, or heard from one of her MLAs in the media, you’ll have heard them say that the Job Creation Tax Cut is costing the Alberta government $4.7 billion. 

She’s dead wrong.

And she’s been proven wrong several times on it. 

University of Calgary economist Trevor Tombe said that “it is demonstrably misleading (I’d say false).”

Rachel Notley was even fact checked on live TV for misleading the public about the cost of the Job Creation Tax Cut (estimated at $700 million).

Under our United Conservative government, Alberta is seen as a place serious about bringing investment in and creating new jobs. With the Job Creation Tax Cut, Alberta will be one of the most competitive places in all of North America. Over time, that means more jobs, and more government revenues to support critical public services. It’s something the NDP should support, instead of campaigning against.
