Budget 2024

Tax and spend fiscal plan will inhibit growth

Goldy Hyder urges Canada to strengthen its co-operation with the U.S. in security of all forms – national, economic, energy and cyber. His perspective was cited in several news articles in anticipation of U.S. President Joe Biden’s official visit to Canada.

“There’s a seriousness to this moment in America.” 

“I don’t want to be alarmist about this, but we cannot take renewal for granted.” 

“It is not in America’s interest to consolidate the capital to consolidate the innovation, to consolidate the talent, because you weaken your allies.” 

“What we need from [U.S.] leadership is a signal that says, ‘Yes, Canada, you are special. We are going to do more with you than we might do with someone else.’ That alone would help build confidence for investment in Canada.”

“You have no greater friend and we have a lot of what you need.”

 “Canada and the U.S. can work together in the global race to the top on clean energy.”

“The Biden visit met our expectations in that it confirmed the opportunity for us to be true partners with the U.S. is real — not just rhetoric.”
