Canada’s inflation rate has risen to a 20-year high, affecting the price of everything from to groceries are families and small businesses are already grappling with the pandemic’s financial toll. Despite this, Justin Trudeau infamously said he doesn’t think about monetary policy, and the government’s response has been virtually non-existent. In this edition of The Andrew Lawton Show, we do a deep dive into inflation, debt and spending – and impact they have on Canadians. Joining this discussion are Macdonald-Laurier Institute senior fellow Philip Cross, Working Canadians president Catherine Swift, and Canadian Taxpayers Federation federal director Franco Terrazzano.
