Central Nova MP Peter MacKay hosted members of the Pictou County Chamber of Commerce Wednesday to discuss the federal government’s Economic Action Plan 2014, and its focus on job creation, economic growth, and keeping taxes low.
“Our government is focused on creating more jobs and growing the economy in Central Nova, Nova Scotia and right across Canada,” said MacKay in a press release.
“Economic Action Plan 2014 is the right step towards maintaining Canada’s enviable economic position – which has seen us lead the G-7 in job and income growth, and which has the IMF projecting more economic growth in the years ahead. I am glad for the opportunity to discuss the Economic Action Plan’s many benefits to our local Chamber of Commerce, and to seek their input, to ensure that Pictou County’s economic priorities remain well represented in Ottawa.”
He said Economic Action Plan 2014 clearly delivered for Canadians by containing no new taxes on families and businesses, while also continuing to ensure government spending was efficient and effective as possible.
“Our targeted and disciplined approach to fiscal and economic management increases business and consumer confidence, which ultimately means an improved quality of life for our local residents and all Nova Scotians,” said MacKay.
