Dollar, Dollar Bills Y’all! (The Budget)
Recording Date: April 11, 2022
On Thursday, April 7th, Canada's Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland tabled her second budget.
What with COVID, supply chain issues, a war in Ukraine, and climate change seemingly gone into hyper-speed, this may be one of the trickiest moments for a Finance Minister in recent Canadian history.
What are the priorities? Are we being spent into the poor house? Does Mr. Singh believe the Prime Minister lived up to the deal? How did the Opposition parties react?
Minimal script, flying without a net.
Because we believe that Democracy Is Something You Do...
