CONFIRMED (again!): Conservatives left a surplus
The Liberal government’s own report says that our Conservative government left them not only a balanced budget, but also a surplus.
The Fiscal Monitor has now confirmed that the cumulative surplus for the 2015-16 fiscal year was $7.5 billion.
Liberal Finance Minister Bill Morneau has insisted for many months that there's a Conservative deficit. This report shows - yet again - he is wrong. The Liberals are trying to justify their out-of-control spending on a deficit that did not exist.
Which means they're spending even more than we thought!
We left a surplus. The report proves it.
Despite this, the Liberals are charging up the taxpayer funded credit card with a mountain of debt.
Tell Trudeau’s Liberals to accept facts: they were left a surplus, and they are going into deficit to pay for their wild election promises.
