Trudeau’s red ink record

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is on track to increase Canada’ federal debt at a record pace, says a new study by the Fraser Institute.

“According to his own government’s projections,” the study concludes, Trudeau “will increase per person federal debt by 5% from 2015 to 2019 — the largest increase of any prime minister whose time in office didn’t include a world war or economic recession.”

“The fact is, Justin Trudeau is the only prime minister in the last 120 years who has increased the federal per person debt burden without a world war or recession to justify it,” said Charles Lammam, the Fraser Institute’s director of fiscal studies.

    It is necessary to increase the debt to cover all the costs for new immigrants and refugees plus for environmental programs.

      And that’s why they’re tightening up the criteria for the disability tax credit to exclude many who have type 1 diabetes and who must spend a lot of time and money to try to manage same.

      • Liberal Progressive

        Well somebody has to pay for the diabetes and dental programs for the refugees.

        • Frances

          And woe betide any of those who no longer qualify for the disability tax credit if they or their families have established a Registered Disability Savings Plan for the now disqualified. That all has to be dismantled as well.

    Hitler and certain other later leaders with “miracle economies” pioneered the concept of running peacetime states with wartime spending. It almost never ends well for those “most in need of our caring goverment’s help”.

    Those who voted for the dumb pos; deserve what they get. I don’t!

    Thank goodness that budgets balance themselves and that interest rates can never again go up.

    May I point out that he did make this perfectly clear during the campaign with his promise to run a deficite and that the budget will balance itself. Anyone who voted for him or his party has no justification to now act offended or surprised. The writing was on the wall in capital letters.

      Two weeks before election day, five people – including myself – pointed out inconsistencies relating to his economic program on his FB page. We were all banned.

  • He said budgets balanced themselves.

    Why wasn’t that a huge red flag?
