Carbon Tax Policy

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019 | Alberta Party, Featured, Platform, Policy

Carbon pricing should be focused on actually reducing emissions. The NDP’s carbon tax is nothing more than a cash cow designed to fund their pet projects, and it unfairly penalizes families for living in Alberta. We don’t have a choice on whether to heat their homes in winter. It’s unfair to punish Albertans for driving their cars when we are geographically spread out. Our system stops punishing moms and dads for living their lives and raising their families, and instead rewards industries that make concrete efforts to actually reduce carbon emissions.

STOP PENALIZING FAMILIES AND HOUSEHOLDS

  • Alberta families would no longer pay the carbon tax on home heating. This recognizes the climate realities in Alberta.
  • The existing NDP carbon tax would be eliminated for businesses that emit less than 100,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases. The existing NDP carbon tax would be eliminated on gasoline and propane used in vehicles and heating.
  • Businesses emitting less than 100,000 tonnes of GHGs would have the ability to opt-in to the system to generate carbon credits they can sell to large emitters for profit on open carbon markets.
  • The Alberta Party’s carbon price would apply to aviation fuel, locomotive fuel, fuel used in resource extraction, and large scale industrial emissions.

Alberta Party corrects the record

Tuesday, February 5th, 2019 | Alberta Party, Featured, In The News, News, Press Release

Earlier today, our Alberta Party caucus released a statement pushing back on claims arising from last year’s caucus shadow budget. Below are some quotes from our release:

“’I want to be clear: front-line services in education and health care are absolutely a key priority for us,’ said Fraser. ‘We have been accused of cutting services, but nothing could be further from the truth. Instead, we are committing to containing the rate of spending increases to a more sustainable level.’

MLA Fraser stressed that, while last year’s Alberta Party caucus shadow budget proposed increased funding for health and education, a lower rate of increase could be achieved by managing attrition and the creation of new positions within AHS.

He also noted that the AUPE did not reach out to the Alberta Party caucus for any comment, before posting its inaccurate claims.

An organization like the AUPE – that represents thousands of hard-working Albertans – should do its due diligence before accepting the government’s claims at face value. Their members deserve to have the facts.'”
