Too much, too soon? The politics of pandemic spending


“I’ve been surprised to read some commentary suggesting that Canadians may be doing too well for their own good,” the finance minister said. “Some have pointed to rising household disposable income in the first nine months of last year as evidence that our government acted too swiftly and too effectively to support Canadians.”

It will not surprise you to learn that Freeland disagrees with that take.

And if Freeland is eager to note that criticism, surely it’s because she and the government know how difficult it might be for any of their political opponents to campaign against any of the specific measures the Liberals took to support Canadian households over the past 12 months.
