Budget 2021 offers choice between austerity or full employment

Canadian business leaders are calling for the Trudeau government to announce a fiscal anchor in its next budget, expected in March or April. 

Supported by deficit-fighting economists and former senior government officials who have been promoting austerity for decades, Goldy Hyder and his Business Council chief executives want to "anchor" government spending to the level of government debt.

The only fiscal anchor worthy of support is full employment.
