    Key Quotes

    “Note that the Canadian dollar was sold ahead of the election results amid reports of the likelihood of a minority Liberal govt. Now the Liberals have won a majority. The Conservatives have been in power for almost a decade.”

    “The Liberals platform is a moderate anti-austerity stance – more infrastructure spending and middle class tax cuts. Trudeau is projecting a somewhat larger budget deficit and higher taxes on wage income of more than C$200k. He wants to pull in from Harper-led military participation in Syria and Iraq. He will cancel the purchases of F-35 fighter planes.”
