Budget 2024

Tax and spend fiscal plan will inhibit growth

Goldy Hyder cautions the federal government to not overdo short-term stimulus spending, but to invest in Canada’s productive capacity. His comments were highlighted in a feature interview with the National Post.

“It seems that there’s only emphasis on one side of the ledger. It’s all spending. If you add the phrase ‘-acare” after any program, it’s a good idea. But who’s going to pay for it?”
