OPINION / Kenney’s recovery plan neither bold nor ambitious

Depending on who you ask, this week’s recovery plan for Alberta’s economy is either a bold and ambitious plan or a hackneyed and desperate gamble.

As far as Premier Jason Kenney is concerned, he is investing in infrastructure, introducing “job creation” tax cuts, establishing a new investment agency, and targeting incentives to create jobs.

But, to his critics, he’s gambling on trickle-down economics, hypocritically building up debt, bankrolling a second “war room,” and investing in risky ventures.
