Reaction to the Federal Budget

Reaction, both positive and negative is rolling in on yesterday’s Federal Budget.

The financial document included a large amount of infrastructure spending, but also included an almost 30-billion dollar deficit.

Political Scientist Allan Warnke says the public will forgive a deficit, provided they see results.

The budget also included $8.4 billion over five years for First Nations Communities.

Nanwakolas Board President Dallas Smith says it’s a positive sign to see the government specifically investing in First Nations communities.
