The Advocate article published Feb. 20 about the Canadian Taxpayers Federation slamming the Business Council of Alberta was one-sided.
Yes, the business council’s recent paper did propose a PST and a home-grown carbon tax for Alberta, but the taxpayer federation representative forgot to mention the other main element of the council’s paper. On page seven, the report clearly states “Alberta undertaxes and overspends.”
But the representative for the taxpayers federation not only neglected to mention that; he also neglected to mention the truly frightening deficit and debt graphs seen on page fourteen of the business council’s paper. So please look it up. For Albertans, I can’t think of a more important booklet (twenty pages easily downloaded from their website) to be reading these days.
