“For five consecutive years the PCs have tried to hide their own fiscal incompetence by underfunding and cutting our education system, and passing the costs of education onto hard-working Alberta parents through ever increasing school fees.

“Hard-working Alberta families cannot trust the Prentice Conservatives to educate their children.

“Alberta Liberals propose to invest in education: hire more teachers, replace retiring teachers and reduce class sizes.

“We would also build the long promised schools that Albertans desperately need.

“It is time to deliver for Alberta families.”
