BREAKING: Ladies and Gentlemen! After 44 Years of PC Ruling in Alberta, Rachel Notley and NDP Win 2015 Election!
Fellow Albertans – After 44 years of being ruled by the Progressive Conservative Party (PC), moving forward, the massive majority have decided to give Rachel Notely and the New Democratic Party (NDP) a fair chance to change things for the better within our growing province of Alberta. This is the first change of government in Alberta since 1971!
Rachel Notley and the NDP have made verbal and written statements saying that they plan to change the following to better our province:
- Personal Income Tax changes: $0-125k: 10%, $125k-$150k: 12%, $150k-$200k: 14%, $300k and over: 15%
- Increase corporate tax to 12% from its current 10%. Small business tax will remain the same at 3%
- Plan to cut school fees in half and eliminate lunch supervision fees province-wide
- Roll back several other fees
- Raise minimum wage to $15/hr province-wide
- and so much more…
With all of that being said, I just want to express my sincere appreciation to each and every one of you that have gone out and voted this election period. We all make a difference!
Elections Alberta reported that more Albertans cast a ballot in the advance polls this year than any other advance poll in Alberta’s history. In 2012, just under 180,000 Albertans cast a ballot in the advance polls, with only 64,000 in 2008, and even less the election prior, whereas this year over 235,000 Albertans cast a ballot in the advance polls.
So are YOU happy with the results of Alberta’s 2015 election? Let us know in the comments!
