It’s official: The Trudeau Liberals have zero interest in ever balancing a budget

On Tuesday, the federal Liberals released their fourth and last budget before facing the electorate this fall. While there are many competing analyses on aspects of the budget, one thing is certain: The Liberals have no plan to balance the budget.

The government under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Finance Minister Bill Morneau has had ample opportunities over the last three-and-a-half years to demonstrate its ability to and interest in balancing the budget. At every turn, however, this government has spent ever-higher amounts of money rather than plotting a route to balance.
