Federal Budget Business (w/ Alex Ballingall and Daniele Medlej)

Faced with volatile economic circumstances, the federal government presented its 2023 budget, which Prime Minister Trudeau and Minister Freeland argue will help Canada and Canadians respond to global trends like friendshoring and the shift to green energy. Billed as a plan to build a stronger, more sustainable and more secure economy, Budget 2023 includes substantial tax credits for clean tech, new taxes on stock buybacks, and modest efforts to address affordability. Adam is joined by Alex Ballingall, a reporter for the Toronto Star’s Parliament Hill Bureau, and Navigator’s own Daniele Medlej, a Liberal strategist and former communications director, to dive into what implications this budget holds for Canadians.
