Where the Parties Stand: Economic Recovery

Last Updated Sep 15, 2021 at 6:35 am PDT

In today’s Big Story podcast, we asked our listeners what their key issues were in this election, and this week we’ll tackle the top five. Every day we’ll go deep on the major party platforms with an expert immersed in that field. Today, the economy. How far back from pre-COVID levels has Canada’s economy come? What do the parties propose to take us the rest of the way? In a world as rapidly changing and volatile is the current one, should we worry about balancing the budget? Is childcare the most important economic investment? And who is best suited to watch over an economy in transition?

GUEST: Ben Dachis, Director of Public Affairs for the C.D. Howe Institute
