Simcoe North M.P. Bruce Stanton delivered his three pre-budget consultation reports to Minister Flaherty today. The three reports – from the general public, representatives of the local municipal governments, and the local business community – are the product of the extensive outreach conducted last January by M.P. Stanton in advance of the 2012 federal budget.
“While we noted that attendance was a little lower this year compared to recent years, I found the smaller groups allowed more detailed and thorough discussion of the issues” Stanton commented. “That being said, year after year, I continue to be impressed with how much time, effort and thought goes into some of the submissions. You can tell that many people see this as a great opportunity to share their thoughts on the upcoming federal budget” he continued.
The 2012 federal budget will be unveiled by Minister Flaherty on March 29th at 4PM in the House of Commons.
