Updates of Goings-On in Calgary-Hawkwood

Calgary Hawkwood

On August 31st, Finance Minister Joe Ceci gave the government’s First Quarter Update. The good news is that the deficit is down $1 billion, and Alberta’s economic recovery is on pace. Exports are up, wholesale trade is up, manufacturing is up, and household and corporate earnings are up.

While Alberta’s economy continues to recover, we still have work to do and remain committed to our plan for a recovery that is built to last.

The government will continue to eliminate waste, find efficiencies and manage costs, including managing public sector compensation, controlling health spending by keeping expenses below growth in population and inflation, and continuing to tightly manage discretionary spending across government.

We will also continue to defend funding for our classrooms and hospitals, so our kids have good schools and our loved ones get the care they need.

At the end of October, I will be getting ready to head back to the Legislature for session. If you ever need to contact my office for assistance or my work in the Legislature, please reach out to me. I can best serve you as your MLA when I hear from you. Please feel free to contact my office at [email protected] or 403-216-5444.
