Canada’s big chance
August 31, 2009
This piece appears in the August 27th issue of MacLean’s magazine:
Canada’s economy is a small fraction of the size of America’s and we’re less productive, but prudent fiscal management has put us in a relatively good position going forward. Mulroney’s much maligned GST and Paul Martin’s careful management of federal government finances contributed to our strength today. It’s going to be up to Harper to ensure this isn’t squandered.
