Economist suggests PST should be brought to Alberta

A new report conducted by economist Ken McKenzie  is suggesting Alberta introduce PST.

The report was completed by the University of Calgary School of Public Policy and its aim was to examine alternative ways of raising government revenue in Alberta.

McKenzie says ““In some cases, I argue for tax reductions and in others for tax increases.”

McKenzie goes on to say, a provincial sales tax should be implemented by the United Conservatives and that the province should keep the carbon levy.

Economists involved in the study say introducing a sales tax could possibly ease Alberta’s dependence on oil revenues.
