Where the major parties stand on 11 key policy issues
Heading into the final weekend of the 2019 Alberta election campaign, Parkland Institute research managers Alison McIntosh and Ian Hussey compare the platforms of the three major parties on 11 key policy areas.
The “path to balance” has become a major platform plank for all parties in this election. Parkland Institute Executive Director Ricardo Acuña looks at the key differences and potential impacts of the path to balance proposals, and assesses their credibility and feasibility.
