Budget 2012

Finance Minister Tom Marshall delivered a nearly $8 billion provincial budget Tuesday, April 24, 2012 that held the line on levels of spending and investments in key areas of health care, education and infrastructure, while carrying a deficit of $258.4 million — lower than previously forecast.

Fears of large job losses in the public sector also failed to materialize with only about 45 temporary positions expected to be eliminated this year. Stories, photos and videos produced by Telegram reporters and photographers covering the Budget.
