The Alberta government is introducing legislation that would force the provincial government, current and future, to hold a referendum before personal and corporate income tax rates could be increased.

The proposed legislation is among the priorities announced in the government’s throne speech delivered by Lt.-Gov Salma Lakhani on Oct. 30.

The speech also included commitments to defend the province from federal overreach, and using the sovereignty act to do so if needed.
