Coalition stimulus seen under C$30 billion

OTTAWA (Reuters) - John McCallum, a Liberal Party of Canada legislator and the senior economic adviser to the party’s leaders, said on Wednesday that the economic stimulus that would be put forward by a proposed coalition government would be “substantially lower” than the C$30 billion ($24 billion) reported by various media.

“It would be irresponsible and fiscally imprudent for a future government to give any figure until we can see what is the state of the books,” McCallum told reporters in Ottawa.
