Ottawa – The federal budget was announced in Ottawa today. The budget is shuffling money around with no new investments in our communities.
“This budget is not what Canadians need right now” said Irene Mathyssen, MP for London-Fanshawe. “We need investments in our communities and in our families. Stephen Harper promised to focus on jobs, but instead he's pushing ahead with job-killing austerity cuts, introducing no new measures to create jobs and playing a shell game with skills training money.”
