Coalition of Industry Groups Endorses Canadian Chamber Call to "Put Canadians Ahead of Politics"

Coalition of Industry Groups Endorses Canadian Chamber Call to "Put Canadians Ahead of Politics"(Canadian Chamber of Commerce)Thursday, December 4, 2008

A broad coalition of organizations representing a cross section of Canadian business and industry today [Wednesday] strongly endorsed the Canadian Chamber of Commerce's call for all political parties to focus on the public interest above all other considerations during this economic crisis.

In a statement issued [Tuesday], the Canadian Chamber expressed dismay with recent actions taken by all federal political parties. The coalition agrees that all members of Parliament must set partisan manoeuvring aside and focus instead on measures to bolster investor and consumer confidence and restore economic growth. Canada needs a strategy that will do more than allow us to tread water during an economic storm. The Government should be looking ahead to economic recovery and growth. Such an approach will not only help Canada cope in these times, but set us up for greater success when the economic tides turn.
