Navdeep Bains promotes federal budget to Laurier students
Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development promotes new science spending
Navdeep Bains, the minister of innovation, science and economic development, spoke to Wilfrid Laurier University students at the Waterloo campus on Wednesday about the federal budget tabled Tuesday.
This is a feminist budget, by a feminist government, because what is good for women is good for Canada. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/YourBudget2018?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#YourBudget2018</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Budget2018?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Budget2018</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/CdnPoli?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#CdnPoli</a> <a href="https://t.co/Bp44wq2j7R">pic.twitter.com/Bp44wq2j7R</a>—@NavdeepSBains
The focus was to promote the government's proposed investments in women, parents, researchers and Indigenous people in the new budget, which aims to ensure Canadians "all have the same opportunity to succeed."
"It's time to build an economy that truly reflects the values we share as Canadians," Bains said in a media release.
Part of what's included in the budget is the introduction of a Women Entrepreneurship Strategy, a new Canada Workers Benefit program and providing investments for researchers and equipment.
