|Description:||The Budget is the purest expression of a government’s priorities and expected outcomes. It is the primary means by which government is held to account in public by parliament, the media, and special interests. It is also an obvious opportunity to propagandize the policy agenda and influence public opinion.|
The speaker is a former Commonwealth diplomat and senior advisor to Treasury Board in Ottawa and Manitoba who will offer an insider’s view of the Budget process. On the eve of Budgets in many jurisdictions, the presentation will explore the politics and practices of how governments make, shake, bake, and remake the Budget through public consultations.
