Why I Couldn't Support the NDP Tax Increase

The following are Greg Clark’s comments from the Alberta Legislature on Bill 2, which would increase corporate taxes 2%.  

 

"Thank you very much, Madam Speaker. I believe in a progressive income tax. I also believe that large corporations can and should pay more, and I believe that Albertans are willing to pay fair value for efficient, high-quality public services. That, I think, defines modern Alberta, but we’ve missed the balance here. I believe five brackets of personal income tax are too many. I believe a 50 per cent increase in the top marginal tax rate for individual earners is too high. I think a 2 per cent increase to corporate taxes eliminates Alberta’s low tax advantage and creates a risk of capital flight to other provinces.

Alberta Party Leader Greg Clark Sends Ramadan Greetings

Today, Alberta Party Leader Greg Clark issued the following statement marking the beginning of Ramadan:

“Today marks the first day of Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic Calendar, the time in which it is believed that the revelation of the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad occurred. Ramadan is considered the holiest month for Muslim across the globe, and it provides a time for worship, devotion, charity, and fasting – as well as a time for Muslims to connect with their families and communities who share their faith.”

“I am proud to recognize the importance of this time for Albertan Muslims, and I offer my best wishes during this holy period. Ramadan Mubarak.”

Alberta Party Leader Greg Clark shares initial views on NDP Speech from the Throne

Alberta Party Leader Greg Clark is glad to see a commitment to cooperation coming from the governing party following Monday’s Speech from the Throne. “I appreciated the government giving opposition parties a preview of the throne speech, and I’m glad to see movements towards multipartisan efforts with the new Special Legislative Committee to protect and review democracy, as well as the bipartisan mental health review led by Dr. David Swann,” said Clark. “This sets the right tone and if it continues I’m optimistic the Legislature will be more effective.”

However, Clark said the Speech from the Throne was noteworthy as much for what it didn’t contain, as for what it did.

Greg Clark issues a statement on the tragic loss of Constable Woodall

Today, Alberta Party Leader Greg Clark released the following statement on the tragic loss of Constable Woodall:

No one should have to experience what Const. Daniel Woodall, his family, and his law enforcement family have gone through. This is indeed, as Police Chief Knecht describes, a tragedy of unspeakable proportions. We must honour the courage and hard work shown by all first responders, and always remember the significant risks they take despite the danger and uncertainty.

Edmonton has lost one of her best and bravest, and his sacrifice will be remembered by all. We are forever in debt to those who strive to keep us safe, to safeguard our way of life, and who face danger every day in order to protect our community.

As a province and as a community, we must come together to help his family and young children through this terrible tragedy.

Finally, I wish Sergeant Jason Harley a speedy recovery from the injuries he sustained from the incident.

Our thoughts are with Const. Woodall’s family, and with all those who serve with the Edmonton Police Service.

Greg Clark's statement on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report

The release of the Truth & Reconciliation Commission report is a chance for all Canadians to join together and fully support Aboriginal Communities in Alberta and Canada. I agree with the findings of this report. Our country participated in a cultural genocide against First Nations. By acknowledging this painful truth, the healing process can begin.

The release of this report is not the end. It allows the healing process to begin. It is the first step of for all Canadians to learn about the horrible injustices of the past, to learn about what happened, to understand what happened and why.

The reconciliation must continue but it needs to be done as a partnership, working together with aboriginal communities.

We cannot let this report like many others before it gather dust on a shelf and we cannot afford to do nothing.
