PM Useful Idiot will run $18.4B deficit, five times greater than earlier projections

OTTAWA—The federal government is projecting a deficit of at least $18.4 billion next year, a shortfall that’s nearly five times projections from just three months ago and well past the $10-billion limit promised by the Liberals.

When the government unveils its maiden budget on March 22, the deficit could well exceed $20 billion once a number of big-ticket Liberal campaign promises—including infrastructure spending—are factored in.
