But this would be advice the government should avoid, Sean Speer told CTV’s Power Play.
“There’s a preponderance of evidence that that type of short-termism not only won’t produce the type of results that most would hope, it actually poses the risk of undermining the effectiveness of the program long-term”, says Speer.
Speer is the co-author, along with infrastructure expert Brian Flemming, of a commentary outlining steps the government should take to ensure its infrastructure spending plan reaches its potential. The commentary is a part of MLI’s From A Mandate For Change To A Plan To Govern series.
Speer also discussed the commentary with CBC News and CBC TV’s Power and Politics.
