Budget 2024

Tax and spend fiscal plan will inhibit growth

Robert Asselin says Canada should support growth and adopt a more fiscally prudent approach to avoid further stagnation. His perspective was shared in a story published by The Hub about the trajectory of Canada’s economy.  

“For me, sustainability is when the revenues you collect are sufficient to finance the programs and the promises you’ve made to Canadians. If they are not, then I think over time, they will become unsustainable.”
