Hour 1:

Friday. We made it. The 2022 federal budget is here, and we are underwhelmed. It's ho-hum, some say it could be worse and some say it could be a lot better. We'll dig into the 280-page document today.

8:10 - "Now you have a permanent shortfall in new construction that does not meet the demand of young people coming up and immigrants moving in...the math doesn't add up, this budget does not get on it."

Tom Korski is here with a look at the top stories from Blacklock's Reporter this week, with a heavy focus on the 2022 federal budget.

20:36 - "I think it has to go there...to keep this team feasible in this kind of market. We're going to be a small market for many, many years."

Rob chats with Derick Fage from Rogers TV who always has a hot take on the top stories of the day.

33:50 - "We like every other city in Canada are facing a housing crisis...people are calling this a housing budget, and there will always be critics saying it's never enough, but I think it's a good start."

Rob speaks with Mayor Jim Watson to get his reaction on what the 2022 budget means for key issues in the City of Ottawa.

9:18 - "They got multiple proposals for the redevelopment...I guess the rumour is Eugene Melnyk made a bid before the deadline in February."
