Redford drops more tough budget hints
EDMONTON — Alberta Premier Alison Redford is dropping more hints about a tough budget, but no hard facts on where the axe might fall.
Redford says the recent drop in oil prices is costing her government $75 million in expected revenue each day.
She says Albertans want the government to live within its means while maintaining communities, health, education and infrastructure.
With those areas making up the lion’s share of government spending, Redford isn’t saying where the cost savings might come from.
She does say there will not be across-the-board spending cuts.
There is no word on when the government will deliver its budget.
