Alberta Party response to Question 10


Question: Would your party support a new financial framework that provides the large cities the capacity and long term predictable funding sources to build major transit infrastructure?

Answer: Yes. The Alberta Party believes in gradually shifting away from the need for provincial funding that “holds cities hostage” and towards a system that allows municipalities to control their own revenues and ability to complete projects of their choosing. During this shift it will be important for there to be clarity about the amount of funding that is available, how that level of funding is determined, and the level at which it will be maintained. The Alberta Party will support a framework that provides the capacity and long term predictability as we move towards more autonomy for local governments.
