CBC Radio's The House: Dollars and sense?
Here is what's on this week's episode of The House
Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland laid out the federal budget this week, with billions of dollars earmarked to tackle housing affordability and boost defence spending, among a long list of other provisions.
Freeland sits down with host Chris Hall to discuss her plan. Then, Conservative finance critic Ed Fast gives his party's reaction.
Vancouver has long been one of this country's hotspots for sky-high housing costs, with prices rising fast year over year. Will any of the measures included in this week's federal budget make a difference?
Former NDP MP and current Mayor of Vancouver Kennedy Stewart offers his take on the proposed measures and whether they can cool his city's red-hot market.
The federal budget covered a lot of ground — from defence to innovation to future growth.
Economist Lindsay Tedds of the University of Calgary, RBC's Cynthia Leach and Paul Kershaw of Generation Squeeze and the University of British Columbia look at the dollars — and sense — of the government's budget plan.
