On Friday's show, Edmonton Sun Senior Columnist Lorne Gunter joined me to discuss the Alberta NDP budget.
The budget shows that the NDP have no problem with making up numbers, like claiming they will only raise spending in the coming year by $200M. Even though they've raised spending by $8B in three years, about 5.2% per year.
The NDP seems to believe the only way they can win re-election in 2019 is by proving they're tough on pipelines and finances. But their own budget proves that isn't true.
Alberta isn't forecasted to run a balanced budget until 2023, by which time the NDP will have increased the debt to $96 billion. More than triple what they inherited!
