    Property tax doesn't even cover a third of the education budget (not even bringing the advanced education portion into it).

    (Provincial) Income taxes account for less than a third of provincial revenue as well.

    I'm honestly surprised it wasn't Florida first.
    Can't reopen first if you never closed anything in the first place!

    I have a feeling if you are thinking of them as economic forces similar to tourists that they won't even be here in the 1st place, the gain may offset losses.

    ie if someone collecting $100k, AB is missing out on $8K of taxes. But this could bring min of $30-$40K/yr of economic activities that otherwise won't be here. I am sure that's cheaper than Fed's and ON gov have given to FCA to keep Windsor open building minivans.

    Where do you see open this whole time ?
    Gyms have been open since the end of the first wave last summer. Same with most of small businesses. Restaurants are open but have had varying restrictions.

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    If it were such an issue to worry about the easy solution is to lower the lower income tax brackets to match Ontario and BC and put in a sales tax to capture spending people do when they’re here and offset the COL difference in salary so it’s worth just shifting their address here for the income tax savings.

    Sales tax would help capture benefits from transient workers for sure.

    The bigger issue with remote workers is that they keep GTA and GVA addresses so they can justify their regional corrected higher salaries. That means their tax dollars are staying there while they use our services here.
    You just described most of the oil patch from 1996 to 2014.

    You mustn't have any friends that live here then because I go to restaurants, stores and the gym every day and have for the last roughly 7(?) months. There was an initial full shutdown last spring for a short while. There are restrictions that really make little sense overall right now but nothing is closed and nothing has been for a very long time.

    Not sure what to tell you.

    Itís open for the most part. Shit, they can have a 30 person wedding! Way more open than us.

    their entire provincial population is also less than calgary alone... they're naturally physically distanced because there's nobody there.

    Open er' on back up. Time for everyone to stop hiding in their basements. Take your vitamin D, don't be obese, and you'll be fine

    I’m not sure if you know, but they have (had) TWICE the new cases per capita, and an older population in general.

    Their health system took it, and the administration handled it better. It’s simple.

    It’s not as though “they stayed open because they have few cases because population density blah blah”

    There is underlying political bullshit going on with health vs Kenney in Alberta, what else could it be??

    Edit: did you know on feb 2nd Saskatchewan had 238 hospitalizations with 1/4 of the population. And they remained open.

    Let that sink in. We’re at 260 right now. Lol.

    the Health unions NEED Kenney to look bad through this, as a bargaining chip. It's transparent and disgusting.
    I mean, it's been bad, and governments are bad at everything, but the narratives are blatantly political. Worse here than Sask and BC for sure.

    The worst part is that Canada in general fucking LOVES jumping on Kenney and Alberta at any chance. Ontario usually clocks in at second worse for hit pieces, which makes sense as it's the most populous province.
