EDMONTON — Details on a savings bond program for Albertans will be coming in the next few weeks, Premier Ed Stelmach said Thursday.
“Albertans have tremendous confidence in not only the economy of the province but also in its future prosperity and I know in speaking with so many that they’re looking for an opportunity to participate,” he said. Stelmach said he’s received positive feedback since raising the idea.
The idea of selling the public savings bonds to help finance building projects dates back to the Depression.
Stelmach made his comments to reporters after giving a speech to more than 1,700 people who paid $450 a plate at the Progressive Conservative Party of Alberta’s annual premier’s dinner.
