Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives
As the start to this week’s budget marathon,the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives just officially released the “So you think you can budget?” tool
It allows you to check off the programs you like, see the deficit and unemployment rate change. From corporate tax cuts to seniors benefits, everyone on Parliament Hill seems to think they know what should be in the budget. But can you do better?
What if you were finance minister for a day, what would be in your budget? We’ve developed an interactive budget tool based on our Alternative Federal Budget where you can choose the programs you think are important. Watch out though, budget choices have consequences. With every program or taxation change comes an effect on the deficit and unemployment.
How will your budget look?
