This week’s Hub Dialogue Roundtable discusses Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland’s speech this week to the Empire Club in Toronto where she announced measures in response to growing inflation. Will it work? And how nervous should Canadians be about an impending recession?

Also, a new poll for The Hub produced by Public Square Research and conducted with the Leger Opinion (LEO) online panel shows Canadians are struggling with high gas prices. Will this drive populist sentiment in Canada?
