Goldy Hyder urges the government to release an early budget for the upcoming 2023 fiscal year. His letter to Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland was cited in several news outlets.
“Inflation, higher interest rates and a looming global slowdown have combined to make this a challenging time for many Canadians. Hence the need for a full budget at the earliest opportunity. In effect, we are proposing a return to the federal government’s traditional budget cycle.”
“The federal government has set aggressive targets for the green energy transition which require immediate action. Any delay in the budget cycle will make it harder for Canadians to achieve them.”
