Team Canada or Bust: It's Time for Provinces to Step-up (SOLD OUT)11:45am-1:30am | One King West Hotel - 1 King Street West, Toronto
The Honourable Michael de Jong, British Columbia’s Finance Minister brings two decades of political experience in Canada’s westernmost province to bear on the need for provinces to strengthen their fiscal house and secure our country’s economic future:
BC has introduced its second-consecutive balanced budget since the start of the world-wide economic slump, and is urging other provinces to do the same.
Minister de Jong will provide an update on BC LNG industry and explain why it matters to all Canadians.
Finally, Minister de Jong will explain how BC has become the most diversified trade province in Canada, with less than 45% of its trade directed to the USA market.
