As we continue to work towards flattening the curve, we must also begin to look towards the future we want to see, and the future that we want to leave for the next generation.
Join Alberta Liberal Party leader David Khan on Wednesday, May 20th at 8:30 pm as we host an informal, round table discussion on what you hope and expect the world to look like moving forward.
This forum will be hosted online and is on a first-come basis, as space is limited. RSVP today HERE. Any inquiries can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ve heard many concerns raised during the past few months, ranging anywhere from universal basic income, supports for entrepreneurs, the sale of Alberta's provincial parks, comprehensive public healthcare and much more. Feel free to bring your favourite local beverage, your thoughts and your friends and let’s talk!
David Khan's response to Premier Kenney's Address to Albertans:
You may, like me, have watched Premier Kenney’s televised address to Albertans last night. It was a sobering picture of the challenges we will face in the weeks and months ahead.
I stand with Premier Kenney in urging everyone to follow the advice of our public health experts.
I have the utmost confidence in their strategy to fight the spread of COVID-19, flatten the curve, and minimize its impact on Albertans.
Of course, the success of this plan relies on both you and me doing our part.
We are in this together.
And if we are truly all in this together, then the government must support all sectors of the economy and all who contribute to it.
Every effort must be made to keep employees in their jobs – to help with their mental health, their financial situation, and to allow businesses and organizations to easily reopen and hit the ground running once physical distancing measures are relaxed.
Alberta Liberal Leader David Khan is calling on the federal government to support Canadians during the COVID-19 pandemic through a Universal Basic Income.
Khan stated, “I support many of the measures announced by the federal government yesterday. This is a good foundation upon which to tackle this crisis but we will need a bolder policy response in the coming weeks.
“That is why we are calling on the federal government to implement a temporary Universal Basic Income (UBI) of $1500 a month per Canadian adult and $500 per child. This UBI should not be means-tested. In this current situation, past earnings are not going to reliably indicate who needs fiscal support.
