The Alberta government has given its timeline for boosting the province's minimum wage to 15 dollars an hour. Labour Minister Christina Gray says beginning October 1st the wage will rise to 12 dollars and 20 cents an hour, then an additional dollar-forty each year until 2018. She dismisses concerns from small business that it will cause job losses. (The Canadian Federation of Independent Business says it's a slap in the face and the brief consultation with the government on the issue was nothing but window dressing.)
