Conservative MP for Red Deer/Lacombe, Blaine Calkins shares a laugh with Cory Litzenberger, left, and Richard Pallister prior to a public meeting at the Blackfalds Community Centre Wednesday evening. About 300 people attended Wednesday with Calkins and tax experts Kim Moody of Moodys Gartner, Steven Schiestel with Summit Strategies and Ina Potts of MNP Red Deer talking about the Liberal government’s proposed tax changes. “The new Liberal tax policy is a tax grab under the guise of fairness says Calkins.” (Photo by Jeff Stokoe/Advocate staff)
