Court cases for two out of province breweries challenging the Alberta NDP’s unconstitutional beer taxes are about to be decided and something interesting has been revealed in court documents filed on May 12th.
These documents highlight a ministerial briefing note advising Finance Minister Ceci on the beer markup which shows that the NDP wanted to make $85M on this tax and that they knew they had to act immediately in order to make as much money from retailers and businesses as possible.
Watch as I show you what was in the briefing note.
This is yet again another NDP policy that works against Albertans and Canadians and not for them, regardless of what the Alberta NDP tell us.
The court decisions for both Steam Whistle and Great Western Brewery are being made late next week and I’ll update you on that outcome.
