PC commitments reportedly to cost $135 million

The Telegram is reporting that the PC promises outlined in its election platform document or “Blue Book” will cost taxpayers $135 million. Dunderdale introduced the “New Energy” platform yesterday, hammering home a theme of fiscal responsibility. The various promises by the PC party include: a continued freeze on post-secondary education tuition; the elimination of provincial student loans in favour of needs-based grants; the undertaking a comprehensive review of emergency response services throughout the province; working with the private sector and the federal government to provide province-wide, high-speed Internet access within four years; and the introduction of a provincial fitness tax credit.
