I’ve previously explained NDP missteps on beer tax policy culminating recently with giving grants to selected Alberta brewers to cover the cost of the tax increase. This is clearly a protectionist policy that gives Alberta breweries an edge instead of sticking with free trade policy that would be in everyone’s interest.
The NDP have clearly received a lot of backlash about this decision and it appears they’re now getting desperate.
Over the weekend, they posted a petition for people to sign in support of the tax.
Watch as I show how they have played with what to call this grant and also resorted to misrepresenting the Wildrose Party’s beer tax policy proposal.
Attacking the Wildrose 6-Pack Plan is just more fear mongering from the NDP, attacking what they falsely deem “scary” conservative policies.
Meanwhile, the NDP are making life difficult for Albertans by increasing taxes wherever they can and driving away business.
