Poll shows most Albertans want to stop equalization payments

in Canada by

Alberta sends billions every year in equalization payments to other provinces across Canada, with the most going to Quebec.

Since Quebec expressed their opinion on pipeline, they have lost their respect from Alberta, or so many say.

Via CBC:

A survey of 1,200 Albertans suggests the majority of people are upset about Canada’s “unfair” system of equalization. They also feel that nothing will change regardless of who is running the country.

The poll shows that 60 per cent of Albertans feel that no matter who’s in charge in Ottawa, other parts of Canada will always be looked after first. In fact, 70 per cent of survey participants said that Canada’s system of equalization payments is unfair to Albertans. Only seven per cent of respondents strongly disagreed with the statement.
