Finance Minister Jim Flaherty will begin unveiling the federal budget in less than an hour. I’ve been following online chatter tagged with #eap13 (the “Economic Action Plan” hashtag) and #bdgt13 (the “non partisan” budget hashtag). Here’s how the issues are stacking up against each other. Analysis was performed using Marketwire/Sysomos Heartbeat.
- Jim Flaherty’s budget shoes
When I include #cdnpoli (the Canadian politics hashtag) the top issues of the day change slightly.
- Oil, gas & pipelines
- Natural resources
- First nations
I haven’t started any sentiment analysis. Partly because there have been no official announcements of the budget details yet.
UPDATE: I’m not including #budget2013 since many countries are using this hashtag for their own budget tweets.
