Western Alienation: Alberta Wants to Sign Its Own Cheques, (w/Nadine Wellwood)

Alberta wants to sign its own cheques If you don’t control your own bank account you don’t control anything says Nadine Wellwood. Her comment refers to the fact that Ottawa collects taxes on behalf of Alberta and it is Ottawa that then decides how that money will be distributed. For example in 2016, Albertans sent $49 billion to Ottawa and $27.2 billion came back. That’s $21.8 billion that Ottawa kept. It adds up to $5,265 per Alberta taxpayer that went somewhere other than Alberta.SHOW LESS
