"I don't think anyone who manages money properly thinks debt is a bad word." That's just one of the troubling comments made by Alberta's new NDP finance minister, a social worker and career politician named Joe Ceci.
All Canadians need to be concerned about his views on economics because Alberta's oil patch has been essentially carrying the rest of the country economically for almost ten years.
Recently, Ceci told a reporter he would balance Alberta's budget by 2018, but he's the one who just made the undemocratic executive decision to borrow an extra $6 billion.
He's already announced tax hikes and a royalties review.
And who is Ceci's chief of staff?
An Olivia Chow campaigner named Nathan Rotman. So basically a door knocker for Toronto's third place mayoral loser.
Alberta's unemployment rate has jumped one percentage point over last year and the jobless rate in Fort McMurray has doubled.
Yes, world oil prices have fallen, but the NDP's actions have made the situation much worse.
