- About the Council
One week before Finance Minister Bill Morneau delivers the government’s fourth budget, Brian Kingston joins Vassy Kapelos on CBC’s Power & Politics to discuss what to expect, key priorities of the business community, and the bigger picture of improving Canada’s competitiveness.
Highlights of the interview:
“You can’t just address competitiveness though in one single economic statement. That’s like saying ‘I’m going to go to the gym once, to become an olympic athlete.'”
“We’re expecting some significant announcements on skills and education,” says @bkingston about what he’s expecting to see in the budget. He hopes the government will use potential fiscal space to address the deficit and put the country back to balance in time. #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/1i2lB6P08U
