Budget 2024

Tax and spend fiscal plan will inhibit growth

Heather Exner-Pirot urges the Canadian government to act and accelerate the mining timeline to keep pace with the United States and address permitting delays. She shares her perspective with Bloomberg News on Canada’s position in the critical minerals sector.

“We know the Americans are getting much more serious on permitting reform as commodity prices go up and we start to see some shortages of critical metals. If we want to be in the critical minerals business, we have to move on it.”
