Issues pertaining to Canadians’ economic livelihood such as inflation, supply chain disruptions and the ballooning federal debt took a back seat in the Speech from the Throne last week as the 44th Parliament session convened.
In total, inflation and the supply chain each received one measly mention while the federal debt received no mention at all.
Meanwhile, Liberal government priorities like reconciliation and climate change both received seven mentions in the throne speech.
We heard more of the same from the Trudeau government. What we didn’t hear was a plan for the economy. A plan to tackle the cost of living crisis.
