The federal government presented Canadians with a budget at the end of February. The federal government is projected to borrow $18 billion this year alone which brings new deficit spending to $60 billion over the last three years. The budget also projects that Canada’s “Real GDP growth” will decline from 3.0 in 2017, to 1.6 in 2019.
I will be hosting a Town Hall meeting to discuss the budget, and other issues of concern on April 12, at 7:00 PM at the BP Church in Beddington Heights (16 Bermuda Drive NW).
An RSVP is not required to attend but is appreciated. You can RSVP by sending an email to Michelle.Rempel@parl.gc.ca or by calling 403-216-7777.
