CALGARY (660 NEWS) – With the budget not projected to be balanced by 2023, Former Premier Rachel Notley is knocking the UCP for not creating jobs.

In a statement, the NDP leader says no new jobs will come in return and more cuts will be coming.

Notley says the Premier will be taking more money out of Albertans’ pockets by giving 4.7 billion dollars to corporations and increasing taxes.

“Jason Kenney can’t see that his economic plan has failed. Instead, he’s doubling down, and won’t admit this budget is founded on completely fictional growth and oil price projections.”

“Kenney thinks you should pick up the tap for his mistakes. So he’ll stack more public-sector job cuts on top of private-sector job losses.”

“He’ll target health care and our children’s schools with even more cuts” added Notley.

Notley mentions the NDP is urging people to email UCP MLA’s to stop cuts across the province.
