In a story by The Canadian Press about Statistics Canada’s Labour Force Survey for January 2021, Robert Asselin emphasized the importance for the federal government to use the upcoming federal budget to present policies that enable businesses investment, economic growth and job creation.  

“The government says it’s working on it for budget, but if (the budget) is just focused on more money for consumption, I think it will miss the mark.”
