Scrums, news conferences, committees, conferences – highlights from the working day in Canadian politics:
Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland delivers Fall 2020 economic statement.
Minister Freeland speaks with reporters about measures contained in the federal government’s fall economic statement. This is the government’s first detailed fiscal update since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, which forced a cancellation of the March 2020 budget presentation by Freeland’s predecessor Bill Morneau. This is also Freeland’s first fiscal update since becoming Canada’s first female federal finance minister. The government pledges to continue supporting Canadians with pandemic measures.
