AN OPEN LETTER TO FINANCE MINISTER FLAHERTY
We, the undersigned, firmly believe that 2015 is far too late to balance the federal budget. Powerful stimulus is essential now, to revive the economy and get it running on all cylinders. All that is necessary is to use the power given to you by the Canadian Constitution. There is a precedent.
From 1939 to 1974 the Bank of Canada provided the Canadian government with large sums of money at near zero cost. This got us out of the Great Depression, helped finance World War II, and many great post-war projects like the St. Lawrence Seaway and the Trans-Canada highway, as well as contributing to the establishment of our Medicare and social security systems which were the envy of the world.
