Statement from Oppsition Leader Zach Churchill on Budget 2023-24
March 23, 2023 – (Halifax, NS)
The Houston government’s budget is the worst of both worlds: out of control spending with no results.
This government’s budget does nothing to help attach Nova Scotians to a family doctor. It does nothing to make life more affordable for Nova Scotians or to address the housing crisis. It also freezes income assistance at a time when everything is getting more expensive.This budget misses on all marks, while growing our provincial debt at a pace not seen since the 1980s.
The Houston government is spending more of Nova Scotians' money without achieving results.
