Parliament Resumes Monday
Prince George, B.C. – The winter session of Parliament resumes in Ottawa tomorrow.
Prince George-Peace River Conservative MP Bob Zimmer expects the focus will be on the economy.
“Yes, absolutely. Oil prices are impacting a lot of us but we’re still committed to a balanced budget. I don’t think it’ll be very long before the price comes back up and hopefully we’ll be back to a point where it’s working for everybody.”
He dismisses criticisms from Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau that the government’s decision to delay the budget until April proves the government is running things “by the seat of their pants.”
“Hardly. We’re prepared for things like this. We don’t like them to happen but good planners always plan so that’s what we’re doing. It’s all stuff we’ve looked at and will weave into the budget.”
