Albertans have paid more than $600 billion more to the feds than we have received back since the 1960s.
Equalization is a key part of the problem
Equalization alone has cost Alberta taxpayers about $3 billion per year. Through equalization Albertans are directly subsidizing politicians that call our oil “dirty energy” and oppose our pipelines.
We’re the Society of Albertans Against Equalization and we’re committed to winning the Oct. 18 referendum against Ottawa’s unfair equalization program. The Society was started by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, which is a non-profit group committed to lower taxes, less waste and more accountable government. But this society is meant to include all Albertans who think equalization is unfair.
