At this point in the political cycle, with 18 months to go before the next federal election, the Canadian Council of Chief Executives (CCCE) is working hard to make its agenda items resonate, not just with the Harper government, but with the business-friendly Liberals and key MPs from the Official Opposition New Democrats.

Having done most of the thinking about the economic and social policy direction for Canada since the early 1980s, the CCCE knows that the best time to establish in the minds of Thomas Mulcair and Justin Trudeau what business wants to see from the next government is before the next election, not after.
