Next blog post Thursday 14 April on defence budgets increases and important Ukraine update

We are combining our 8 and 15 April blog posts, in light of the upcoming Easter long weekend. It will be published, and the notification email sent, on Thursday 14 April 2022. We will examine the implications of the Defence Budget increase of $ 8 billion over 5 years, and the announcement of a new Defence Policy Review.

We will also consider the 2022 Budget’s “Heightened Impact Scenario“, setting out the negative economic consequences for Canada and the global economy of a drawn out Ukraine conflict, underscoring once again the urgent need for a peace deal to end this terrible war.
