CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - May 1, 2014) - Alberta's wealth didn't occur by accident. There is a misconception that since Alberta's always had the resources, the capital will just keep coming. This belief is patently untrue and dangerous to Alberta's economic future. Alberta didn't come into its enviable economic position because of geology or geography. It wasn't low exploration and development costs. It certainly wasn't the weather. It was a stable political regime, economic certainty and investor confidence. Today, these advantages are eroding in Alberta and posing a serious risk to our long-term economic health. Thanks to a series of questionable political decisions, investor confidence is shrinking, the regulatory burden is growing and, as a result, capital is leaving. Changes must be made in order to reverse these trends and re-establish a stable economic framework that attracts investment and ensures the only economic risks are posed by the market itself, not by the provincial government.
