Alison Redford's response to Question 09

Question: Do you believe there is a fiscal imbalance between municipalities and the provincial government, and if so, how do you plan to rectify it? What tax reforms do you favour?

A: Yes. I plan to bridge this gap with city charters and more local decision-making through the devolution of power. Municipalities are entitled to a greater say in their own governance and fiscal management. We will define these changes as part of the talks on the creation of charters.
