Facing a deficit, Alberta makes tough choices on infrastructure
Alison Redford has chosen a controversial path for Alberta politicians - for the first time in years, Albertans are looking at a budget deficit.
Despite the pressure to reduce spending in certain areas, the Alberta Premier says infrastructure spending can't be reduced.
âWe think itâs important, even through these difficult economic times, to keep investing in those institutions, those buildings, those services that really matter to communities and families,â Redford told CBC News.
âWhenever we've pulled back before on infrastructure, we always ended up needing it again, sooner than they thought we would,â said Redford.
