The federal government’s latest fiscal update includes a bigger deficit than previously anticipated, but at least it’s a politically correct budget.
The government’s financial plans have gone through a “Gender-based Analysis Plus.” This sort of analysis is not new to the Trudeau government, but the document says its scope is no longer restricted just to gender. “GBA+ goes beyond gender to consider additional identity factors such as ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, income level, and mental or physical ability,” the document says.
True North’s Andrew Lawton says the government could accomplish more if it was as eager to balance the budget as it is to play identity politics.
