A joint meeting of The Empire Club of Canada and The Canadian Club of Toronto. The government's strategy for recovery and agenda for economic renewal set out 3-1/2 years ago when they took office. A review of what that strategy and agenda were. A discussion in response to the question posed by the speaker: "And how have we been doing as Canadians?" Statistics and statements to illustrate how well Canada and Canadians have done and what is in place to ensure continued success. A review of action taken by the government to facilitate these gains. Remarks on the free trade agreement with the United States. Tax reform and other programmes, developments and initiatives to be introduced or implemented. Ways in which the government "is meeting its responsibility to ensure that the country can continue to meet the challenge of producing growth, jobs, opportunities, and greater security for all Canadians."
