Budget A Missed Opportunity to Reduce Inequality: Mulcair
Canadians had high expectations for today’s Liberal budget, but what they got instead were missed opportunities to tackle inequality and backtracking on key commitments. They shortchanged First Nations education by $230 million and First Nations child welfare by $130 million in the first year alone.
“Families across Canada are worried about their jobs and struggling to make ends meet – but today’s budget told them they would have to wait longer for help,” said NDP Leader Tom Mulcair. “The government missed an opportunity today to really deliver change.”
