HALIFAX - Peter MacKay, MP for Central Nova, participated in a roundtable with Nova Scotians on Tuesday, soliciting input for this year’s federal budget.

“Our Conservative government knows that the number one priority for Nova Scotians—and all Canadians—remains the economy. Our Economic Action Plan is keeping our province and country on the right track, with over one million net new jobs created since the end of the global recession – the best growth record among all G-7 countries,” said MinisterMacKay in a news release.

As Canada is faced with continued economic uncertainty from beyond our borders however, it is imperative we hear from Canadians in every province on how to better position ourselvesforfurther economic growth and job opportunities for Canadians.”  

“Many of the ideas brought forward in local pre-budget meetings have been included in the actual federal budget. Through participation in this process we can ensure the priorities of Nova Scotians will continue to be represented.”

Budget 2014 will focus on job creation, promoting economic growth, and securing Canada’s long-term prosperity –  all while returning to balanced budgets in 2015. To this end, the federal government also welcomes suggestions on how it can further improve government efficiency and reduce unnecessary spending.

Nova Scotians and Canadians are reminded that they can also provide their input online, as the federal government has launched a pre-budget consultation through the federal Finance Department website. All those interested in participating can find more information atwww.fin.gc.ca.
