April 8, 2022 | Across interviews with Global News Morning Toronto, CBC News, and iPolitics, professor Kevin Page gave his expertise on the recently unveiled Canadian federal budget for 2022-2023.

"It's really not a lot of spending relative to past budgets. Actually, it's a pretty slim budget for the size of our economy," said Kevin Page, president and CEO of the Institute of Fiscal Studies and Democracy at the University of Ottawa. "It's just not a big-spending budget."
