The West Block: May 15, 2022 | Helping Ukrainians come to Canada, Bank of Canada’s role in inflation
CA, 14 May 2022
This week on ‘The West Block’, guest host Eric Sorensen speaks with Immigration Minister Sean Fraser about why it is difficult to predict how many of the 100,000 Ukrainians approved for temporary visas may come to Canada.
Then, Conservative leadership candidate Pierre Poilievre made a splash saying he would fire the Bank of Canada governor if he becomes prime minister.
Sorensen speaks with former parliamentary budget officer Kevin Page about the role of the central bank and why firing the governor is an “oversimplification” of addressing inflation.
Then, former Conservative cabinet ministers Lisa Raitt and Monte Solberg join the show to break down the Tory’s official English debate.
