(OTTAWA) – February 20, 2019 – Canada is at an economic and social tipping point because of our inability to get resource infrastructure built, according to the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
“The very fabric of our country is being threatened by the devastating impact of low oil prices, our inability to get resources to global markets, and the increasing tensions between resource-producing regions and the rest of Canada,” the Honourable Perrin Beatty, President and CEO of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. “Our natural resources should be a source of pride for all Canadians. As producers of some of the cleanest, most ethically-produced products in the world, we should be doing all we can as a country to get them to global markets, where they can get a fair price, help reduce global greenhouse gas emissions, and contribute to our prosperity as a nation.”
(OTTAWA) – February 20, 2019 – From every corner of the country, business leaders want to see the March 19 budget propose effective measures to help Canadian businesses compete.
“This will be the last budget before the federal election. It’s a critical opportunity for the government to address the growing uncertainty in Canada’s business community,” said the Honourable Perrin Beatty, President and CEO, Canadian Chamber of Commerce. “Our members, businesses on Main Street in every town across the country, want to know that the Government has a plan to reset Canada’s economic direction. Business owners want Canada to be an attractive place to start or grow a business, and to invest in.”
