Finance minister Bill Morneau sits with Calgary business group in pre-budget consultation

Both Finance Minister Bill Morneau and Adam Legge, president of the Business Council of Alberta, said there was much to agree on in a pre-budget consultation Thursday morning in Calgary. But Legge added economic fear that has boosted separatist sentiment in Alberta will likely continue until residents start to see the benefits of pipeline expansions and hear words from Ottawa that indicate real support for the Canadian resource sector. Morneau was the third senior Liberal politician to visit Calgary in a week after the party was shut out of the province in last fall's election.
