We’re all quite excited about our plans for the coverage of the federal budget in less than two weeks. A key part of our plan is a public event: The Morning After Budget Day, which will take place early on Feb. 12, just off Parliament Hill, so denizens of the capital can take our analysis with them to work.
We’re pleased to have a sterling panel of expert analysts. I’ll be joined by Kevin Page, the first Parliamentary Budget Officer and now the holder of the Jean-Luc Pépin Research Chair at the University of Ottawa; Ailish Campbell, the VP (International) for the Canadian Council of Chief Executives; and Laval University economist, and Maclean’s Econowatch stalwart, Stephen Gordon.
We’ll serve a light breakfast, wake you up with some coffee and deliver a focussed briefing on the issues the budget raises. It all starts at 7:30 a.m., Feb. 12, at Sidedoor Restaurant, 18 York St. in Ottawa’s Byward Market. Tickets are available here for $30.
