I am a long time supporter of the Fraser Institute. I have great respect for their metrics. I am disappointed that HM Government has dismissed the Fraser's most recent analysis of the stimulus package. I am not a fan of deficit spending. The government should read the Fraser Institute's analysis and cut the deficit as rapidly as possible.
There are good things about the last few budgets including corporate tax cuts. iffy apparently wants to eliminate these cuts. So why didn't he support the dippers with their recent proposals .
It looks like republican donolo wants to restart merger talks with the dippers.
ast week on these pages we detailed the findings of our study, “Did Government Stimulus Fuel Economic Growth in Canada?” Based on the latest economic data from Statistics Canada and using the same methodology for analysing the data as the Bank of Canada, we found the federal government’s deficit-financed $47.2-billion Economic Action Plan had virtually no impact on last year’s economic turnaround.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Finance Minister Jim Flaherty responded to our report with harsh words. Both criticized the report as being “ideologically” motivated. Minister Flaherty was “disappointed” and remarked that our report was “poorly done” and “shabby.”
