    by C.K. Now that winter is over and spring had finally sprung, it’s time to spend more outdoors than indoor activities.  I’m  sure that even the pets we have wants to wonder around in this wonderful weather.  I just got a glimpse of the crocuses on our rock garden and a few perennials  coming back from [...]

It was an honor for PINOY TIMES to be invited in a Multicultural Ethnic Media Round Table with Minister of Finance Joe Ceci together with Minister of Social Services Irfan Sabir on May 26, 2018 at the MacDougall Center.  The discussion revolved about the most important topics:

  • Budget 2018 and the Path to Balance
  • Alberta’s economic recovery
  • Market Access for Alberta’s Energy Products
  • Importance of and why we are fighting for the TMX Pipelines

After the worst recession in a generation, things are looking up. Jobs are up, the deficit is down, and Alberta’s economy has been growing faster than anywhere in Canada.

Budget 2018 is focused on extending the recovery to all Albertans and continuing to build a more resilient, diversified and stable economy that is less vulnerable to oil price shocks — a recovery that is built to last.

The plan is built on three pillars:

Diversifying the economy – fighting for market access, adding value to our energy products and supporting new and developing industries.

Protecting vital public services – making sure loved ones get the care they need, young people get the best education possible and no one is left behind.

Returning to balance – investing tax dollars where they are needed most, while eliminating waste and controlling spending to return to balance by 2023-24.

The discussion became intense as the rest of the other topics were discussed particularly with the TMX Pipelines since we all know that Alberta is an oil and gas industry hub.  But with what Minister Joe Ceci and Minister Irfan Sabir, the government is definitely looking after the welfare of the Albertans, thus the reason for making sure that Budget 2018 details get around even in ethnic communities since the ethnic media has a better way of imparting the information especially in their own languages and culture.
