CALGARY – Alberta’s Liberal party has released its full policy platform with a plan for job creation, stronger public services, and a new sales tax.

Liberal Leader David Khan says the platform is focused on solutions.

It includes previously announced policies such as capping class sizes, more resources for mental health, a basic income pilot project and an $80-million back-to-work grant fund.

The platform also has a pledge to eliminate income tax for two-thirds of Albertans by bringing in a revenue-neutral HST.

Khan says the plan also puts forward new policies that include comprehensive justice reforms, expanded human rights and an environmental strategy.

The election is set for April 16.
