Ending Mistreatment of Western Canadians

Today, Erin O’Toole announced an important first step to end the mistreatment of Western Canadians. To restore open and respectful federalism, Canada’s Conservatives will fix the Fiscal Stabilization Program by:

1. Removing the per person payout cap.

2. Lowering the revenue decline threshold so that it is triggered at 3% rather than the current 5%.

3. Lowering the resource revenue decline threshold so that it is triggered at 40% rather than the current 50%.

4. Making these changes retroactive to 2015. 

The retroactive changes will flow through our Equalization Rebate, giving $5 billon back to provinces paying more than their fair share during some of their hardest years, with $4 billion going back to Alberta.

Canada’s Conservatives are here to offer a choice – more of the same from Justin Trudeau’s Liberals and the other parties on the left, or restoring fairness in the West with Canada’s Conservative.

I’m proud to be part of a party that is taking a stand on behalf of all Albertans.

Take Action

Secure the future, help elect Erin O’Toole’s Conservatives and get Canada’s economy back on track.
