Justin Trudeau came to office promising tiny deficits of “only” $10 billion/year.
Not only has he since confirmed that his deficits will be even larger than that, but according to the National Bank, Justin Trudeau could run a deficit of over $90 BILLION dollars!
Our Conservative government worked hard to deliver a balanced budget - and we succeeded! Finance Canada officials confirmed we left the Liberals a surplus.
But the Liberals don’t care. Yesterday, they rejected reality by voting against the report from their own officials. The Liberals would rather believe their own spin than numbers spelled out in black and white!
We’re going to keep fighting. Because we know that balanced budgets benefit all of us – families, seniors, businesses, everyone.
