Canada’s Con­ser­va­tives to force a vote on bal­anc­ing the bud­get

Asian Journal - - NATION -

Ot­tawa: The Honourable An­drew Scheer, Leader of Canada’s Con­ser­va­tives and of the Of­fi­cial Op­po­si­tion, and the Hon. Pierre Poilievre, Con­ser­va­tive Shadow Min­is­ter for Fi­nance, is­sued the fol­low­ing state­ment re­gard­ing the Fall Eco­nomic State­ment and an up­com­ing Con­ser­va­tive mo­tion:

“On Wed­nes­day, the Lib­er­als will ta­ble their Fall Eco­nomic State­ment and no mat­ter what it con­tains, only one thing re­ally mat­ters. Justin Trudeau needs to tell Cana­di­ans when he will bal­ance the bud­get. Fu­ture gen­er­a­tions shouldn’t be on the hook for his reck­less spend­ing. “Justin Trudeau said he would only run small deficits of $10 bil­lion a year, and that he would bal­ance the bud­get by 2019. But he broke those prom­ises. In­stead, this year’s deficit is now al­most $20 bil­lion, three times what Justin Trudeau said it would be, and he has added $60 bil­lion in debt.

“You don’t need to be an econ­o­mist to un­der­stand that more debt to­day means higher taxes to­mor­row. Cana­di­ans know its wrong to leave their kids with an un­paid credit card bill. But that’s ex­actly what Justin Trudeau is do­ing.
