McGuinty is definitely on base here. This high dollar is not good for the way our economy is structured. Wasn't it a Canadian trait to be cautious and anticipate the storm after the calm, always second guessing our good fortune? Where's the prudence now? I guess it's busy thinking up ways to make everything a matter of confidence. Well I'll make it simple for them: I have no confidence in where they're taking this country. Besides, it's not like those benefits of the high dollar are being passed on to jane and joe consumer. I suppose we should be satisfied with an extra cent off the GST; how much less does a "double double" cost now anyway?
This next one goes under duh! Even though it's not common knowledge to finance ministers current and present, the aforementioned joe and jane consumer (who've now changed their last name to Canadian) are well aware.
Interesting, both Harper and Bank of Canada Economist Stefan Marion expressing some caution about our dollar's performance. Let's see what action if any will be taken.
