I want a province that is debt free and strong. But I also recognize that we were left a large infrastructure deficit by the NDP. We finally have new schools, new hospitals and improved roads. We are waiting less time for surgeries. There are a significant number of low-income people who are no longer paying income tax. And there is still much that has to be done. And as I have said, government needs to ensure our spending is appropriate to our revenue. We need to be disciplined in our spending, even when times are very good. I feel that while the heritage fund is an excellent idea, we also have to balance the needs of today and the future. My priority is to significantly reduce our debt to ensure we are in a strong position for the future.
If you become premier, will you ensure a heritage fund is in place and ready if/when resource revenues go up again?
