Sander Grieve writes in Canadian Mining Journal on what Canada's 2019 federal, provincial and territorial budgets mean for Canadian mining companies. Some budgets stand out with stable, multi-year tax and incentive arrangements that show an understanding of the competition for investment.

Sander says that for other governments that speak about aspirations for the industry, without support, one can only hope on behalf of citizens looking for growth, employment and prosperity that they adopt the physicians maxim and at least 'do no harm.'
