In House: Budget, Bloc and Bollywood
Bill Morneau's fiscal blueprint was as much a political statement as it was a policy document.
But unlike his previous two budgets, this one had underlying tones of pragmatism, according to our In House panelists, Susan Delacourt and Joel-Denis Bellavance.
It was "a political statement, but not a sweeping one," Delacourt explained.
Bellavance said he saw the document as a tactic to go after left-leaning voters.
"It's designed to send signals to potential NDP voters that the Liberals were also looking to the issues the NDP defend in the House of Commons."
