The election promise Liberals, Conservatives agree on

Throughout the election campaign, federal party leaders have unveiled plans to help get Canada through the post-pandemic recovery. While they may not agree on many issues, both the Liberal Party and the Conservative Party appear to be on similar pages when it comes to innovative research.

Both parties have proposed the creation of Canadian research agencies aimed at funding the development of cutting edge technologies.

On this episode of Crisis Management, Alicja Siekierska and the Public Policy Forum’s Sean Speer discuss the spending plans proposed by the major parties, and why the creation of a federal research agency – one modelled after the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency in the United States – is important to the Canadian economy.
