Jim Flaherty set to announce budget date

Watch for a mid-day announcement at the Department of Finance's offices in Ottawa

Rumours abound in Ottawa today that Finance Minister Jim Flaherty will set a date to table Budget 2013. Apparently, he’ll make the announcement when he meets with students from CIVIX, an organization that strives to “grow young Canadians into engaged, committed and active citizens.” Flaherty’s meeting with CIVIX takes place at noon in the East Tower lobby of L’Esplanade Laurier, where the Department of Finance’s offices are located.
