Albertans trusted Jason Kenney to make our lives better. Instead, he’s implemented massive job loss and vicious cuts. We didn’t vote for this.

Your life is busy, and the news cycle is fast. Kenney tries to make cuts even faster. He wants you to turn a blind eye because he thinks you can’t keep up.

That’s why we’ve created this cuts tracker. You can keep track of cuts that happen daily, or filter for issues that affect you the most, like health care and education. Together, we can spread the word and fight back.

If you haven’t yet, take the pledge to Stand up to Kenney!

Stand up to Kenney!
