Finance Minister Bill Morneau begins pre-budget talks

Finance Minister Bill Morneau is launching pre-budget consultations today.

He will hold a media availability beginning at noon ET, and will carry his remarks live.

Last year’s pre-budget consultation process had more than 250,000 “touch points” including online, Facebook and Twitter, according to Morneau’s office.

MPs on the finance committee will also carry out a pre-budget consultation process. That committee has received 420 written submissions from various sources.
