Invitation by the Honourable Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance, to Participate in Advantage Canada Consultations
To Canadians in every part of this country, I would like to say that I’m looking forward to seeing your ideas on how we can best implement Advantage Canada, our new long-term Plan to build a strong economy for Canadians and secure a better quality of life now and for future generations.
As I reported on November 23rd in our government’s first Economic and Fiscal Update, our economy is doing well and we’re exercising real discipline to keep the government’s finances balanced.
But we also recognize that the ground rules of the global economy have changed.
We live in a volatile and exciting time, with advances in communications technology, reduced trade barriers and declining transportation costs opening the door to endless possibility and opportunity.
