Robert Asselin commends the federal government on the success of the child benefit program as effective public policy that improves lives. He shares his perspective in a Canadian Press article about an adjustment to Canada Child Benefit on its seven-year anniversary. 

“And, you know, I think credit [goes] to the Prime Minister, who went with it. And I think that as a result it had a much bigger impact because it was focused on people who needed it.”
