Trudeau’s numbers don’t add up #elxn42

Justin Trudeau has trouble when it comes to budgeting.

He was for balancing the budget before he was against it.

In a recent interview, he told a CTV host that if folks want to know how much his promises will cost taxpayers, we can pull out a calculator and crunch the numbers ourselves.

So when the Liberal party unveiled the math behind its election campaign promises, Trudeau was nowhere to be found.

The party’s financial brass outlined its plan to add a jaw-dropping $146.5 billion in new government spending over the next four years, financed through debt, increased taxes and targeted cuts.

Trudeau’s style-over-substance approach to politics means he causes more harm than good at these kinds of economic discussions.
