With the recent announcement of a new Canada Child Benefit, I decided to calculate how much of an impact this will have in our Bruce Grey - Owen Sound riding. After all, a big part of this will be 'new' money flowing into our community that wasn't there before. This money will be spent by local residents in local stores, and circulated within our community.
So, how much money will be suddenly appearing in our community? While I haven't seen a front page announcement of this, it made me think, "What if we considered this, as we would a new employer who suddenly moved to town, promising full time jobs? Would this make the news? What if they were the size of E.C. King or Hobart Food? Would that make the news?"
