In spite of this, in recent weeks two respected voices in Canadian public policy have bravely stepped forward to shine a spotlight on this issue which is about nothing less than the standard of living that we will bequeath to future generations of Canadians. ITAC believes that, in spite of its drab appearance, improving productivity in Canada is an issue of vital importance to all Canadians.
