Pro­vin­cial debt rises

The Prince George Citizen - - SPORTS -

The de­te­ri­o­ra­tion is due in part to a one­time $3.5 bil­lion re­clas­si­fi­ca­tion from self-sup­ported debt to tax­payer-sup­port debt re­lated to the gov­ern­ment’s de­ci­sion to can­cel tolls on the Port Mann bridge.

It also partly re­flects stronger ex­pected cap­i­tal in­vest­ment through­out the fis­cal plan.

To­tal pro­vin­cial debt is now fore­casted to rise from $65.9 bil­lion at the end of 2016-17 to $72.8 bil­lion by 2019-20.
