Fiscal Update-Reaction

/ 97.3 The Eagle
              The country’s Opposition party is giving the Trudeau government an earful for opening up its wallet for new spending during good economic times without offering a plan to balance the federal books. Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer says the Liberal fall economic statement should have cut taxes and brought spending under control. But Finance Minister Bill Morneau says Canada’s strong economy has allowed the government to invest a third of its unexpected windfall in tax relief and new spending on social programs to support children and the working poor. N-D-P critic Guy Caron says the extra spending actually amounts to only a pittance for poor families.
