CANADA: Advocates are Waiting to see Support for Basic Income from Alberta’s New Minister of Finance
BI News has already confirmed that Naheed Nenshi, the mayor of Canadian city Calgary, supports basic income and has vowed to take leadership on it. Newly released articles suggest that there is support for basic income from other parts of the province of Alberta including from the Vibrant Communities Calgary agency and the Momentum agency where the current finance minister of the province was formerly employed. Sources have speculated that Alberta’s Finance Minister, Joe Ceci, might be open to exploring a negative income tax for the province.
