Trudeau Promises “Modest Deficits”

Oh, here we go:

Justin Trudeau says a Liberal government would run modest, short-term deficits until 2019 in order to kickstart the economy.

The party’s latest platform plank, which proposes doubling current federal infrastructure funding, says shortfalls in the federal treasury over the next two years would amount to no more than $10 billion per year.

There is a caveat, though.

The platform acknowledges the volatility in global markets and the Liberals have left themselves wiggle room on the numbers by saying “if the fiscal situation deteriorates due to a further slowdown of the economy in the weeks ahead, Liberals will be honest with Canadians about the facts.”

HA! Honest about facts! What a laugh!

    They’re simply banking on the idea that Canada has more freeloaders looking for more free stuff than contributors. We’ll see. They might be right.

    And, just like his syphilitic father, what that translates into is endless pork and graft for Morontario and Queerbec, paid for by the prairies and anyone else they can loot.
    Been there, done that, bought the tee shirt.

      Mo, time for that vacation we were talking about.

      Try and imagine what Canada would look like now if Tommy or the drama teacher had their paws on our money for 8 years.

        Sorry tell you this but we need a change of leadership, we can not been in the same leadership that has too many connections related to fraud or keep selling Canada for nothing.

          • Maurixio Garciasanchez

          • Clausewitz

            So which is it? Are you a Canadian citizen and this whole downtrodden Latino personae has been a pile of shit, or you’re a Latino with no right to use the word “we” when discussing Canadian policies and political decisions, you can’t have it both ways. Yes or no answer, easy even for you.

      Actually that supposed 3.1 billion missing was a leftover from the Chretien era. It was left up to the CPC to track down and account for the missing money, and they did. Liberal unsubstantiated lies are not the best platforms to stand on.

      • Maurixio Garciasanchez

        After almost 10 years you blamed the Libs give me a break , you must be dreaming most likely .

          I know, I know, the truth scares people like you.

  • Ron MacDonald

    He’s been criticizing Harper for running deficits when the world economic situation went downhill, now he plans on doing the same.

  • ntt1

    Governments cannot create jobs except for the civil service which siphons off taxes into a black hole. the best thing any Government can do is create a climate favorable to job creation and the best action is to get out of the way. and reduce red tape.
    it is highly unlikely the two parties dedicated to big government will do this .

  • Chris

    The only way governments can ‘kickstart’ an economy is to take less money from it. Something tells me that fact is lost on all politicians.

  • Edubeat

    Yes and the ‘budgets will balance themselves’
