Answer

Yes. Alberta should stop giving public subsidies to private schools. The subsidies cost the province $110 million per year, excluding special needs schools. That funding would be better spent improving classroom conditions in our Public, Catholic, and Francophone school systems.

Alberta is also wasting part of its funding for seniors’ care by paying for the profits of corporations the government has signed contracts with to provide care. The government should phase out this inefficient and inequitable funding of private seniors’ care, including both home care and facility-based care, by shifting investments to publicly delivered care so no funding is wasted on corporate profits.
