Red Deer (April 29, 2015) – Today David Swann introduced the most comprehensive arts and culture policy of any party.
"Even in these uncertain economic times, support for the Alberta creative community must continue," says Alberta Liberal leader David Swann. “For every dollar invested in the arts, an estimated $12 of economic activity is created.”
Alberta Liberals believe that arts and culture — museums and art galleries, book publishing to live theatre, film and television production to recorded and live music — are not a frill, but an essential part of living in this great province.
The Liberal plan is specifically designed to help seniors stay in their homes, free up hospital beds, put money in their pockets and keep them healthy and active.
Calgary, AB (April 28, 2015):
Albertans will be getting poorer under an NDP plan — and that’s according to numbers from the ND's themselves.
According to the NDP budget document, the NDP anticipates raking in an additional $1.1 billion in personal income tax revenue under their tax hike scheme 2015-16. However, that number falls to $730 million in 2016-17, and falls again to $575 million in 2017-18.
