    HarperCons in Question Period are pathetic. They claim strong economic leadership, but Canada has shown no growth in 3 of last 4 months Jobs numbers last year were DOWN 60% from 2 years earlier. Job quality is at 25 year low. Another 1000 gone yesterday in Oshawa. If HarperCons have an economic plan, it is an abject failure on both jobs+growth. HarperCons have no job creation target.

    Finance Minister Oliver in Question Period today, but he might as well not bother. He offers no sign of concern about big job losses + no growth. The economy shrank in January by more than reported. No growth in February. Not only is oil+gas down; so is manufacturing. The economy is stalled. And today, GM kills 1,000 more Canadian jobs, + for 35% of households debt ratios are reported to be 200%. #Budget fails.

    Joe Oliver even misses the vote on his own Budget! The Finance Minister is supposed to be the government's leading spokesperson on all economic matters -- most especially the Budget. But right after he delivered it last week, Mr. Oliver blundered into a foolish comment about leaving economic risks to our grandchildren to solve, and he's been benched ever since. He has failed to answer any questions in Parliament. He hasn't even shown up for Question Period. And tonight, he wasn't even allowed to be in the Commons to participate in the budget vote. This reconfirms what many people suspected when Stephen Harper selected Mr. Oliver to replace Jim Flaherty last year. Mr. Harper wants a Yes-Man in that role who will simply do his bidding without question or value-added. Too bad for Canada.

    The HarperCons have once again banned Finance Minister Oliver from Question Period - not available to defend his bungles. Oliver is wrong on debt paydown, wrong on growth stats, has no job creation forecast + cannot adequately explain tax breaks. His quip about leaving fiscal time-bombs for our grandchildren is typical of a government preoccupied with short-term partisan vote-buying.

    HARPER BOOSTS TFSAs ... AT THE EXPENSE OF OAS/GIS There's growing controversy about Stephen Harper's changes to "Tax-Free Savings Accounts" (TFSAs), especially compared to how he chopped the old age pension a few years ago. He is nearly doubling the annual TFSA contribution limit (from $5500 to $10,000), thus ballooning the costs of this program by many billions of dollars and skewing it toward wealthier households. The Parliamentary Budget Officer has published a blunt critique, calling the changes "regressive". With annual contributions up to $5500, TFSAs have generally been within reach for most Canadians. But interestingly, only about one-third of all those eligible actually participate, and fewer than a quarter of that third contribute the maximum. If not used-up in one year, the room to make a TFSA contribution can be carried forward. At the existing annual limit of $5500, the average TFSA still has close to $10,000 of unused room for more contributions. So there would not appear to be a compelling case for boosting the annual limit. How many middle-class families have an extra unutilized $10,000 available in after-tax money every year to max-out? Almost doubling the limit, as Mr. Harper is doing, creates investment advantages increasingly limited to those with higher wealth. Is that good public policy? Is it affordable? These questions bring to mind the cuts Mr. Harper is imposing on Canada's Old Age Security (OAS) and Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) system. It looks like a double standard. While TFSAs are being enriched, the OAS and GIS are being curtailed in a manner that will take nearly $32,000 from the very lowest-income seniors. In the aggregate over future years, Mr. Harper's OAS/GIS reductions will generate several billions of dollars in "savings" for the federal treasury, while his expansion of TFSAs will deplete that same treasury (and the provinces too) by several billions of dollars. The trade-off is clear -- the small pensions of the least wealthy and most vulnerable seniors are being cut to make room for higher retirement incomes for the more well-to-do. That strikes a lot of people as unfair. It's important to note what the OAS/GIS are, and who benefits: * These are modest retirement income support programs provided by the federal government -- the OAS since 1952, the GIS since 1967. Beneficiaries do not contribute premiums. All Canadians (on a means-related basis) become eligible for the OAS upon reaching the age 65. If they have very little other income, they are also eligible for the GIS. * The maximum OAS monthly benefit for a single individual is currently $564. The maximum GIS is $764. That works out to a grand total of just $1,328 per month, or $15,937 per year for seniors at the lowest end of the income scale. * OAS/GIS benefits are scaled down (and eventually eliminated altogether) for those who have other higher sources of retirement income. The system is thus focused on seniors who don't have many options to support themselves in a secure and dignified way. * From a fiscal perspective, the cost of the OAS/GIS today is equal to about 2.5% of Canada's Gross Domestic Product. That's a bargain compared to many other countries where their public pension systems consume some 10% or more. * But back in 2012, Stephen Harper declared Canada's OAS/GIS to be unaffordable. He had to cut them back, he said, by phasing-in a higher eligibility age. The Conservatives rammed through a law that will hike the age over time from 65 years to 67. Unless amended, that phase-in will be completed by the year 2029, affecting everyone who is under the age of 58 today. * This attack on future lower-income seniors directly violates an explicit election promise made by Stephen Harper personally. He has broken his word. * Moreover, Mr. Harper's cuts are both ineffective and unnecessary as a cost control measure. By the time they are fully phased-in, OAS/GIS costs will be about to decline naturally because most of the Baby Boomers will already have passed through the system. Changing the age -- while damaging individual seniors -- will at most save the government less than one-third of one point of GDP. * A vast array of experts and actuaries have reported that Canada's OAS/GIS system is sound and secure and doesn't need this age-change -- including analysts with the OECD, the Parliamentary Budget Officer, the Auditor General, the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions, the Fitch and Moodys rating agencies, the universities of Calgary, British Columbia and York, the Centre for Policy Alternatives, the C.D. Howe Institute and others. In short -- if it ain't broke, don't fix it. * Furthermore, delaying the eligibility age doesn't make the need go away. Losing two years of benefits will cause some of the most vulnerable seniors to fall below the poverty line. Many will have to seek social assistance from provincial governments. So the real costs just get transferred from one level of government to another. * Fundamentally, the main point is fairness. Who are the Harper government's primary victims here? They are those who must rely on OAS/GIS the most. They are those with the most meagre incomes and the fewest alternatives. They are very often single women living alone. From these Canadians, in their years between 65 and 67, Mr. Harper is going to take nearly $32,000. This policy is simply wrong. The recent TFSA enhancements make that point glaringly obvious. How can Mr. Harper claim he has to cut support for the poorest elderly widows, while his budget is bolstering the incomes of those already more affluent? Surely Canada can do better than this!

    In Question Period: At contributions up to $5500, TFSAs are useful and accessible to most. The doubled amount will mostly go to wealthy. Meanwhile, Harper government is slashing Old Age Security + the Guaranteed Income Supplement by $28,000 for lowest income, most vulnerable seniors. Costs of expanded TFSAs, mostly for wealthy, will be tens of billions of dollars. Poor Joe Oliver says let our grandchildren pay.

    BUDGET REFLECTIONS So we waited an extra two months for this? First on this issue of "balance" ... Canadians will be excused for being skeptical about the Harper government's claims that it has "balanced" this budget since it has not successfully done so over any of the past 7 years, even though the recession actually ended six years ago. In fact, this is not the absolute declaration of a balanced budget since the fiscal year has only just begun. It ends next March. The federal books will be closed for 2015-16 only next spring and an audit won't be performed until the fall of 2016. So no one will know if this "promise to balance" has been kept until long after an election is over. Isn't that handy! In any event, how credible is the claim of a balanced budget when the surplus margin is only $1.4 billion on an overall budgetary package close to $300 billion? That margin sounds more like a rounding error. Or a clever bit of lucky arithmetic. Is a budget truly balanced when it all hinges on using most of the Contingency Reserve, a big hurry-up asset sale (at what turns out to be a discounted price), arbitrary assumptions about oil prices and growth, the elimination of any extra prudence, and the deferral of all major spending proposals? More fundamentally, this budget fails to be credible because it provides its biggest and most costly benefits to those who are the most well-to-do. Those who need the most help get the least. There is no meaningful support for the middle class and those working hard just to get there. And there is nothing to drive more jobs and growth. ###

    BUDGET BACKGROUND The 2008 recession, which Stephen Harper blames for all his economic failings, lasted only 9 months and ended 6 years ago. But still Canada is struggling. Economic growth through Mr. Harper's nine years has averaged a meagre 1.75% - the worst growth record of any Prime Minister since R.B. Bennett in the 1930's. Many other countries are doing better. Canada has not topped the G7 on jobs or growth in at least four years. The Bank of Canada says there was zero growth in the first quarter of this year. Job creation remains weak. The phantom job numbers the Harper government brags about are 3 and 4 and 5 years old. Cold comfort today. In all of 2014, there were only 121,000 new jobs created in total in the whole country - down 60% from 2 years earlier. Job quality has declined to a 25 year low, says the CIBC. Another 28,000 full-time jobs disappeared last month. The Harper Conservatives say median after-tax familiy incomes are just fine -- stop your complaining. But those incomes are only 15% ahead of where they were 30 years ago. And household debt has ballooned to 165% of disposable incomes. Three-quarters of those working in the private sector have no company pension. The typical 35 year old today is able to save only about half of what their parents did. Among those within 10 years of retirement, only one-third have been able to set aside $100k or more. Another third have no retirement savings at all. Two-thirds of middle-class families are worried about affording post secondary education for their kids. In more than 40% of empty nester families, their adult children have moved back home because the economy is simply not good enough to let them get started on their own. Ominously, national surveys show a majority of Canadians now believe the next generation will actually be worse off than their parents. The fundamental Canadian middle-class expectation of progress -- of upward mobility from one generation to the next -- can no longer be taken for granted. This is Stephen Harper's economic legacy. It's simply not good enough for Canada. Our country needs a new and better plan! ###

    In Question Period: HarperCons boast about "creating jobs", but real stats show that was 3, 4 + 5 years ago. Job growth dropping last 2 years. Canada is falling behind many other countries. Haven't been at the top of G7 in either jobs or growth for at least 4 years. HarperCons' "balanced budget law" is sham. If they meant what they say they'd make their bogus law retroactive to cover the last 6 years.

    CANADA NEEDS TO MOVE BEYOND ECONOMIC MEDIOCRITY Following a speech I gave about economic growth last week to the "Canada 2020" group in Ottawa, I want to thank all those who have joined the debate -- about the fiscal records of past federal governments, and more importantly, how to rise above the last nine years of mediocrity and move Canada forward more successfully. At long last, Mr. Harper's claim of being a good fiscal manager is being challenged more aggressively. And rightly so. It's interesting to note that even among those who didn't much like my speech, the focus of their disagreement was largely historical -- i.e., how much responsibility for previous fiscal problems should properly be borne by each previous government. What did they inherit from their predecessors? What new challenges arose? How did they respond? And what did they leave to their successors? The arguments run back 50 years or more. But however you might rank Diefenbaker, Pearson, Trudeau, Clark, Mulroney and Campbell -- it is clear that an important corner was turned in the 1990s with Chretien and Martin. They inherited the makings of a fiscal crisis. Canada's financial circumstances were described by international media as worthy of honourary membership in the Third World. The debt ratio was approaching 70%. Just servicing that debt consumed a third of all federal revenues. Chretien and Martin faced it squarely, and fixed it. As a consequence, when Mr. Harper took power in February of 2006, he was handed one of the strongest fiscal situations in the western world. He inherited a decade of balanced budgets, an annual surplus of some $13-billion, declining taxes, a debt-ratio that had been slashed in half, a strong banking system, a secure Canada Pension Plan, regular monthly trade surpluses, an annual economic growth rate of better than 3%, and some 3.5-million net new jobs. Transfers to provinces were at a record high, and the country was investing in fairness and growth -- ie., in families, medicare, education, science and infrastructure. But in less than three years -- while the economy remained strong -- Mr. Harper squandered Canada's hard-won fiscal security. Ignoring concerns about a potential housing bubble in the US and emerging weaknesses in American banks, his government made reckless decisions about fiscal policy, spending and management which put this country back on the verge of deficits once again. It's critical to note the timing. This happened BEFORE, not because of, the recession. Arriving in the latter part of 2008, the recession undoubtedly made things worse, but it was Mr. Harper before that who made us far more vulnerable than we needed to be. And remember how he denied it -- to bluff his way through the 2008 election. He said a recession was unlikely; we'd all just have "good buying opportunities". He said he would not run a deficit, and promised five more balanced budgets. Was this deceit or incompetence? And note this too -- that recession which Mr. Harper still blames for everything lasted only nine months and ended six years ago. But Canada continues to struggle with a slack economy. Growth is weak. Both job creation and job quality are poor. Household debt is at a record high. Young people cannot get a decent start on their own. Retirement incomes are woefully inadequate. Confidence in the future is at a low ebb. In the latest global forecasts for economic growth over the next two years, a number of countries, like the US and the UK, are positioned well ahead of Canada. Some others (Germany, France, Italy, Japan, India, etc.) have had their growth prospects recently upgraded, while Canada is among a few who have fallen back. Despite all the Harper government's expensive advertising to the contrary, Canada is no longer leading the pack. Which brings me back to the key point that dominated my speech last week: Mr. Harper's policies have failed. Canada needs a new economic plan, one centred on the imperative of greater growth to lift the well-being of the middle-class and all those working so hard just to get there, to foster greater fairness, and to balance the nation's books on a sound and durable basis.

    MR. OLIVER'S FEEBLE REBUTTAL Yesterday in Ottawa I spoke to a meeting of a progressive policy think-tank known as "Canada 2020". The topic was the lack of growth in the Canadian economy over the past decade and how that is affecting the middle-class. The complete text appears on my website. Later yesterday, Finance Minister Joe Oliver issued a rebuttal -- sort of. While he was clearly miffed, he failed to make any specific response to any of the main points. I pointed out the chronically bad records of Conservative governments when it comes to balancing budgets -- there was only one in all of the 20th century. I pointed out that BEORE any recession arrived in Canada in the fall of 2008, Mr. Harper had already burned through the sizeable fiscal surplus left to him by his Liberal predecessors, and he put our country back on the verge of deficits once again. I pointed out that two-thirds of Canada's federal debt today is attributable to the deficits accumulated by the Mulroney and Harper governments, and that Mr. Harper alone has saddled every Canadian with $4400 in new Harper debt. I pointed out that Mr. Harper has a weak record on economic growth, job creation, job quality, median family incomes, economic fairness, the well-being of the middle-class and all those working so hard just to get to the middle-class. I pointed out, like the late Jim Flaherty did before me, that the Harper government's Income Splitting scheme is very expensive and unfair. It also does nothing for economic growth. I pointed out the sheer waste of costly Conservative government advertising, the huge hole the government has created in infrastructure funding, and the way Canada has fallen behind in the advancement of science and innovation. I called on the government to improve its support for municipal infrastructure, access to higher learning and skills, and research and development. Mr. Oliver shied away from all these areas. His rebuttal focused instead on one thing -- the extent to which Transfer Payments to the provinces had been reduced in the battle against Brian Mulroney's massive deficits and debt in the 1990s. Well, if that's what he wants to argue about, here's the answer: 1. When those difficult decisions had to be made 20 years ago, Mr. Oliver's Reform Party predecessors were calling for far deeper cuts across the board, so it's a bit hypocritical now to complain they were too severe. The Reformers also wanted to kill the Canada Pension Plan and a more US-style banking system. 2. The fiscal issues in the 1990s were serious and demanded serious action. Deficits had been outstanding for a quarter of a century. They had risen under Mr. Mulroney to the whopping level of $40-billion per year. The debt ratio was a crushing 70% of GDP. Just servicing that debt was sucking up a third of all federal government revenues. Canada's fiscal sovereignty was at stake. 3. During the time these issues were being dealt with, the Liberal government of the day sought re-election twice and won majorities on both occasions -- indicating a clear level of public support and approval. 4. But more importantly, the decisive action taken in the 1990s was successful. It put Canada on a strong fiscal footing -- probably the best in the western world. We produced a decade of balanced budgets, a debt-ratio cut in half, lower taxes, a strong banking system, a secure Canada Pension Plan, annual economic growth of better than 3%, and 3.5 million net new jobs. 5. Having re-established Canada's fiscal sovereignty, we also invested in families, medicare, infrastructure, education and science. And before our term was finished, we moved Transfer Payments to the provinces to a record HIGH level, including an historic 10-year Health Care Accord, which would never have been possible if the problems of the 1990s had not been tackled and fixed. Maybe Mr. Oliver should pick a different topic.
