MP Niki Ashton Calls The Federal Budget Disappointing

When it comes to the recently announced federal budget, our MP says it is disappointing.

Niki Ashton said that the budget is full of half measures on childcare and clean drinking water for First Nations, while not addressing issues that the north is facing like the housing crisis, health care and education.

 

She added that the budget does not close stock option loopholes that benefit friends of politicians, and that the government has done nothing to go after tax havens that quote rob social services of well needed funds.

 

Ashton said that the budget is the same old policies with progressive language being used as a disguise.
