Paul Martin and Tom Mulcair take aim at the government's economic agenda
Dismissing the Conservative economic plan as "an absolute disgrace" and "nonsensical," former Liberal Prime Minister Paul Martin has leapt into the debate over Finance Minister Joe Oliver's upcoming April 21 budget.
In an interview on The House, Martin told host Evan Solomon that Canada is facing a "very serious" economic situation and he accused the government of doing nothing about it. "[The government] is not doing the right things now and we have not been doing the right things for the last decade," Martin said.
Then, Official Opposition leader Tom Mulcair also criticizes the government for not announcing the budget date in Parliament.
The NDP leader also outlines what he would like to see in the federal budget, what he will be looking forward during the Mike Duffy trial, and what he thinks of the extension and expansion of the mission against ISIS.
