Nathan Cullen, NDP finance critic and MP for Skeena-Bulkey Valley says today’s federal budget is a missed opportunity that does little for the average Canadian.
He calls the budget an election document that does little for Canada, at a time when the economy requires leadership, and if anything, will alienate many.
Cullen says while there are some positive notes in the budget, which he points out were NDP ideas, he says there isn’t enough for job creation.
Cullen also says the north doesn’t get a lot in the budget.
He says the NDP are working on their own ideas for a budget plan for the upcoming fall election.
Ultimately, Cullen says the budget caters to a select, and wealthy group that the Harper government hopes to entice into supporting the Tories.
