Looks like everyone is mad about equalization, so it’s time for us to explain why Equalization is Good. Joining Team Advantage this week is Ricardo Acuña, Executive Director of the Parkland Institute. We talk about what equalization is, how it’s often misrepresented, and why it’s actually really important. Spoiler: guaranteeing a basic level of public goods and services to all Canadians is great.
Follow Ricardo at @RicAcuna, and read his Vue Weekly columns on equalization here
and here. And of course, be sure to check out the latest at the Parkland Institute!
