Can you imagine the federal government racking up deficits each year, until 2070? This national post article suggests that this may happen, without a government that dramatically changes how it operates. That’s according to the pbo, which is the parliamentary budget officer.
Erin O’Toole says he will balance the budget in 10 years. So he needs 2 full mandates plus half of another term to do it? Clearly its a meaningless promise. The Conservatives clearly have no concerns about fiscal conservatism. What exactly are they “conserving”?
We know that the NDP and the Greens are not fiscally responsible and have no issues with the spending of the liberal government either.
Only Maxime Bernier and the People’s Party of Canada will address this huge issue and get these deficits under control. A PPC government will balance the budget within the first mandate of four years.
