The Alberta budget comes out on Thursday and just once, just once I’d like to hear the opposition parties say they like it. That its wonderful and they couldn’t have done any better themselves.
But, that probably isn’t going to happen.
Tuesday the throne speech came out and amazingly (I’m being sarcastic), there weren’t many fans of it among the opposition ranks.
Liberal Leader David Swann says the Conservative speech was merely a rehash of old promises, with little focus on where to take the province in the future. The Liberals say the Tories need to reduce wait times and improve service in health care.
Brian Mason of the N-D-P says promises regarding a police college in Ft MacLeod, a cancer strategy and improved environmental monitoring initiatives have all been made before.
Just once I’d like to see it… probably not this time though
