Ontario's Opposition Leader Tim Hudak has taken a lot of grief for his campaign promise to create a million jobs. Many wonder if a government can take credit for creating jobs at all.
To talk about that we were joined by two guests:
- Sean Speer is the Associate Director of the Fraser Institute's Centre for Fiscal Studies. He was a senior economic advisor to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Director of Policy to the Minister of Finance.
- David MacDonald is a Senior Economist at the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.
Do you think it's realistic for politicians to promise new jobs?
