VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 21, 2015) - The Fraser Institute, Canada's leading public policy think-tank, will release a new study on Thursday January 22 ranking how Canada's premiers have performed in terms of managing their provincial economies.

It ranks 10 provincial premiers (five current and five former) on three core components of fiscal policy: government spending, taxes, and debt and deficits.
