REALITY CHECK: PC campaign pulling numbers out of thin air

The PC Party, desperate to save a floundering government, claim today that the NDP is not proposing to spend enough on health care.

The NDP plan restores $1.1 billion to the 2014/2015 health budget, and then maintains this reinvestment over the following four years.

The Prentice budget cuts $1.1 billion, and then proposes to maintain this cut over the following three years.

Jim Prentice called this election asking for a mandate from Albertans for his budget. The PCs are now pulling numbers out of thin air and we all know why: The PCs are no longer campaigning on Mr. Prentice’s budget because Albertans have rejected it.

They’ll say anything to change the channel.
