To the Legislative Assembly of Alberta, in Legislature Assembled:

We the undersigned residents of Alberta, petition the Legislative Assembly to find lasting revenue solutions, rather than waiting for the return of high oil prices. This will mean ensuring the long-term financial stability of the province by building a revenue system that will support necessary public services like education and health care by introducing tax and royalty reforms.

We petition the government to: 

  • Reject right-wing calls for public-sector cuts. More layoffs are not what Alberta needs.
  • Address Alberta's budget shortfall by strengthening the income tax system;
  • and collect a fair share of energy royalties instead of introducing a myriad of royalty giveaway programs without clear objectives.
