Petition to shut down UCP ‘war room’ and reallocate funds to healthcare

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!


30 million tax payer dollars per year have been allocated to the CEC or ‘war room’ created by the UCP despite numerous layoffs in health care during a global pandemic.

It is not clear exactly what the CEC does or will achieve as Alberta is at the mercy of global oil prices. It is also not clear what this 30 million will be used for as it is a ‘private corporation’ and therefore is exempt from Freefom of Information and Protection of Privacy Requests (FOIP). Therefore, spending of these funds will not be made public. The legitimacy of this has been questioned by privacy and legal experts.

Please petition the UCP to shut down the CEC immediately and reallocate these funds to an industry that will benefit the health care system and provide extra financial support during a Public Health crisis.
