Yeah, Alberta spends like a drunken sailor. It's funny to hear complaints from a lot of people here about quality of service - I have to ask if any of them have ever lived in other provinces.
I remember the first time someone was in a hallway bed here - complete pandemonium. In other provinces, they now measure hospital space according to how many hallway beds they can fit in. Same with roads and transportation in general. I don't even want to drive my vehicle east anymore, because the road quality takes a serious nosedive once you leave the province. Yet many locals here think they're terrible.
