Already cancelled Telus about 3 years ago. Switched to with a dolphintel voip. We use our cell phones in power outages. Went from ~$75/month with Telus to $50.29/month. Saved close to $1000 now.

Alberta's minimum wage is now $12.20/hour!
Now I have to fire someone. SAD. Yes, I am a statistic. I use Alberta people to provide the United States with small square hay bales. Unless I can automate more like +McDonald's is doing by getting rid of the cashers less hay will be produced in Canada --Another good job lossed.
Agriculture doesn't employ the most minimum wage earners, that award goes to the food industry, so hopefully some restaurant will hier my worker and Alberta will be OK. My fear is with lunch now costing $20 per person less people will be able to eat out and thereby negating the need for the restaurant owner to hire someone. With minimum wage increasing 40% increase in 5 years we will soon hit 12% unemployment (record). Only 3.5% to go.

+Giles Richardson I agree equality among humans fosters cohesiveness. It is just sad that I can't sell any of my hay to the US any more and therefore all Canadians are poorer now.

As a solar home owner who has pumped 18 Mwhs into the grid and received only 16 Mwhs from the grid the last 3 years, I feel I am helping the planet enough already. Besides electricity is only 11% of our GHG emissions
It still cost me $1200 per year to be connected to the grid. Maybe I should buy $12,000 worth of lithium batteries and disconnect from the grid. #carbontax

Venezuela is running out of money hopefully Canada is not next.

When President Nicolas Maduro inherited the Venezuelan Socialist "dream", in April of 2013, just one month after Chavez died, he was facing a mere 53% inflation rate. Today the Venezuelan bolivar is almost worthless, and inflation is creeping to 500%

Alberta’s general minimum wage will have risen 20% -- effective October 1, 2016 it will be $12.20 per hour. Do you think in three years we will have run away inflation like Venezuela? Right now the NDP can still borrow $10.4 billion on a $50 billion budget and only lose one credit rating. We still sit at a double A.

That is $12.50 USD an egg at a grocery, or an egg McMuffin for about $70 USD.
For many Venezuelans, by every economic, social and political measure, their nation is unravelling at breakneck speed.

10.9 billion deficit expected in Alberta this year.
If you divide that by 4.2 million you get $2600 per person. If you subtract people under 15 (26.6%) and people over 65 (17.2%) that means the working people each will pay an extra $4475 this year.

I keep wondering what the NDP plan to tax to get that monies back. It would be different if we were getting capital improvements. #alberta #budget
