Alberta Finance Minister Travis Toews in Lethbridge

November 1, 2019

Alberta's Finance Minister Travis Toews was in Lethbridge shortly after releasing the provincial budget. Toews, Lethbridge East MLA Nathan Neudorf and Lethbridge Mayor Chris Spearman react to the budget.

The province has been under fire by many in the public sector union since it will be asking arbitrators to impose an average two percent wage cut in 30 upcoming public sector wage cases. Workers affected include nurses, teachers, social workers and sheriffs. There are 180 thousand public sector workers in Alberta.
