I have expressed some frustration on these pages about the CFIB in the past but I have also praised the organization for doing such a good job of embedding the small business agenda within government (they aren’t the only voice in that game but a strong one).
Why they want to agitate the government of Nova Scotia to the point the Finance Minister is calling for the leadership’s removal doesn’t sound like typical CFIB style. Has the CFIB leadership gone rogue or is this just the Minister getting all worked up over nothing?
The CFIB is very well researched – they have economists in every region and they poll their membership hourly (it seems). Not sure if I have ever seen them engage in such a direct fight with a provincial government in the past.
