Higher oil prices give Chrystia 'SS' Freeland more room to piss away money in April budget

Financial Post: 'The government is set for an even bigger revenue windfall than it projected in December, economists say, as higher energy prices boost corporate taxes and fuel incomes in the world’s fourth-largest producer of oil.

'Revenue could surpass projections by as much as $30 billion (US$23.6 billion) over the next two years, though the governing Liberals are likely to book a more conservative amount given extreme levels of uncertainty and volatility as a result of Russia’s war in Ukraine.

'Still, the better-than-expected fiscal picture allows Freeland to deliver on campaign promises from last year’s election, along with new measures to spur growth and innovation, without fuelling deficits that could stoke inflation that’s already at a three-decade high.'
