The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - BUSINESS -

MON­TREAL — Fed­eral Fi­nance Min­is­ter Bill Morneau in­sists the govern­ment has a plan to grow the econ­omy but wouldn't say what ad­di­tional steps he's pre­pared to take should the loonie and price of oil, both of which dropped to lev­els not seen in more than a decade, con­tinue to fall. “We'll watch ev­ery in­di­ca­tor ... (but) we're con­vinced that our pro­gram is the right one to help us grow our­selves out of the sit­u­a­tion,” he said Tues­day dur­ing pre-bud­get con­sul­ta­tions in Mon­treal. Morneau also wouldn't say if he's pre­pared to ac­cel­er­ate in­fra­struc­ture spend­ing to give the econ­omy an early kick-start.
