Premier Addresses Proposed Tax Increases in PERT Report

Premier Andrew Furey is remaining tight-lipped about its contents but does say Monday’s budget will be setting out signals about the strategies his government will be taking and the direction they plan to go.

Finance Minister Siobhan Coady will be delivering the budget speech in the House of Assembly on Monday at 2 p.m.

Premier Furey says the budget will be one of “balance and measure.” He explains that acting too quickly will cause the wrong levers to be pulled, resulting in adverse effects they don’t want.

Furey states that the fiscal state of the province and the global pandemic need to be kept in mind. He says the public can expect a budget that is measured and action-oriented.
