Fice Minister Bill Morneau says economic growth will guide federal government spending decisions in the future -- rather than specific, fiscal-discipline benchmarks. Heading toward five years of multibillion-dollar deficits, the Liberal government has all but stripped away the fiscal targets it promoted on the election trail. Morneau tells The Canadian Press that the spending plan aims to put the country on a higher growth trajectory. (Since tabling his first budget this week, Morneau has been defending the document against criticism that it lacks a plan to eliminate -- or even control -- the deficit.)
