Terry Sheehan, MP, Sault Ste. Marie and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Economic Development (FedNor) is inviting constituents to share their ideas through an online questionnaire at LetsTalkBudget2021 which will be available until February 19, 2021.

These discussions allow the government to hear the best ideas from Canadians and experts across the country about how Budget 2021 can support Canadians through the pandemic and help us build back better.

“My top priority remains supporting workers, businesses and protecting the
health and well-being of Saultites and all Canadians. The Government of Canada
wants to hear from you. Over the coming weeks, we will be listening to your ideas about how the government can support clean economic growth, create good jobs, and continue to improve Canadians’ quality of life. I encourage all the constituents in the riding of Sault Ste. Marie to visit the pre-budget consultation website and be a part of our economic future.” said Terry Sheehan, MP, Sault Ste. Marie and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Economic Development (FedNor)

When COVID-19 is under control and Canada’s economy is ready to rebound, the government has a plan to make smart, targeted investments to jumpstart the country’s economic recovery and begin to repair the damage done by the pandemic. These pre-budget consultations are an opportunity for Canadians from across the country to share their ideas and priorities for how the government can best invest to create jobs, strengthen the middle class, and build a greener, more competitive, more inclusive, and more resilient economy.

“The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has affected the lives of Canadians across the country, who have faced tremendous challenges. Together, we are fighting to bring this virus under control and, once we do, Canada will be ready for a recovery that brings our economy roaring back. To prepare, our government is listening directly to Canadians so we can ensure Canada’s investments have the greatest impact. We want to hear ideas from Canadians, from all walks of life, on how to restore strong growth, forge a more resilient middle class, and build back better. This is your budget; tell us what matters most to you.”
stated The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance

  1. The contents of the questionnaire are all based on a false assumption that we approve of more spending of money that Canada does not have and will never have. Most of the questions ask how Canada can “invest” in this or that, and plays into identity politics.

  2. i think the fiberals are going to rely on the 905 district and giving away money to try to win another term for boy wonder……..pitiful what they have done to this country, even worse the people that seem to think its ok

  3. Seems pretty clear that Trudeau has no issues with Biden shutting down Keystone Pipeline. Anyone else not too shocked by this response ?? Maybe this liberal government better get back to what they bought, with taxpayers’ money. Remember, the Trans Mountain Pipeline. $4.5 Billion taxpayer dollars sitting there….. collecting dust. Forget about reset folks, let’s get back to basics. The budget does not balance itself, the economy doesn’t just go back to where it left off, before the covid. And this government can not just sit back and hope and pray that things will go back to normal. We do that: the government is paid to be the adult in the room. We need constructive decision making. I hope to God that the libs have a plan, though I am very sceptical as I’m sure many are out there. We’ll see what happens. If the response to the vaccine roll out is any indication, I think we are in dire straits folks. I sure hope I’m wrong.
