CALGARY — Wildrose leader Brian Jean says he will not reveal the experts who helped develop the party’s fiscal plan.
Jean is promising that a Wildrose government would balance Alberta’s budget by 2017 without raising taxes.
The Progressive Conservatives say that proposal would result in a $29-billion shortfall.
Premier Jim Prentice has challenged Wildrose to identify the fiscal experts who drafted the plan.
Jean says his advisers don’t want to be publicly identified for fear of reprisal from the PC government.
He says it’s the same as government staffers being asked to say who they were volunteering to work for during the election campaign.
