Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole says his party would revamp the country’s fiscal stabilization program in what he calls a “first step to end the mistreatment of Western Canadians.” The announcement in Calgary comes one day after the Prime Minister was in town announcing final approval of a massive transit project in the city and taking shots at rivals. It’s a sure sign the parties are in election mode. “Even as Alberta’s economy suffered with massive reductions in resource revenues, Albertans continued to pay more than their fair share to support the rest of the country,” O’Toole said in a release on Thursday. “That’s why a Conservative government will fix the Fiscal Stabilization Program as a first step to ensuring that Western Canadians are treated equally in our confederation.” The fiscal stabilization program is intended to shore up provincial finances when there is a sudden drop in revenue.
