A budget surplus

Is it THAT hard for a government to find things to spend money on? Education? Health? Infastructure? You'd think so. But no, Alberta would rather give a $400 "resource bonus" to every Albertan. Why can't they take that money and use it wisely?

The strange part is its Ralph Klein's last term as premier, so its not like he's trying to win votes.

Well, since I started this thread Alberta announced that they plan to spend like 700 million in surplus money on healthcare so thats a step in the right direction.

Man, Alberta going to be freaking loaded with cash in the coming years from all the oil. Its going to be a good time to live here.
