Economy Q & A: Join me at 4:30PM ET today

Today, September 17, at 4:30pm Eastern, join me for a live webcast Q & A on the economy.

There’s no RSVP required, just click this link a little before 4:30pm ET and join us on

You can submit a question in advance here.

When I was elected Leader last April, I promised the economy would be my top priority.

I said to the millions of middle class Canadians, and the millions who work hard every day to join the middle class, that under my leadership the purpose of the Liberal Party of Canada will be you.

Which is why, today, I announced the creation of my Economic Advisory Council, a group of experts who will advise me on how to move Canada’s economy forward after so many years stuck in first gear.

But as I’ve said many times before, my vision for policy creation is not to build a platform behind closed doors. I want to work together with you to create a policy vision that belongs to all Canadians.

Which is why I’ve asked two lead members of my Economic Advisory Council, Finance and National Revenue Critic, Scott Brison, and respected business journalist and author, and newly nominated candidate for Toronto Centre, Chrystia Freeland, to join me today at 4:30pm Eastern for this live Q & A on the Economy — and why I hope you’ll join us.

From how to support small business, or increase productivity, to how to raise incomes for the middle class, this is your chance to influence me, Scott and Chrystia on the big economic policy questions facing Canadians.

Please click here a little before 4:30pm Eastern to watch live — and be part of this important discussion.

You can submit a question in advance here, on Facebook here, or by tweeting @JustinTrudeau

Thank you.
