Alberta Electricity-4.1 billion in indirect taxation

A study commissioned by the Province of British Columbia on the merits of privatization has been put forward.

This study tells us how much we have paid in indirect taxation to Edmonton and Calgary. The number is a staggering 4.1 billions dollars.

That is 3/4 of an annual budget collected on electricity alone as a utility bill rather than the indirect tax that it is! Alberta's low tax regime is still another lie!

Certainly there must be some Conservatives out there shaking their heads and, there must be a bunch of people out there who thought it was not worth while to vote, rethinking their decision?
