True dough

The Coast - - THIS WEEK -

Justin Trudeau’s Lib­eral gov­ern­ment re­cently passed a mile­stone. Sadly, it’s an ex­pen­sive one for Cana­dian tax­pay­ers. Our gov­ern­ment’s mar­ket debt topped $1 tril­lion not long ago. That means Cana­dian tax­pay­ers owe in­ter­est pay­ments on $1 tril­lion in out­stand­ing bills. It’s an­other sign that Justin Trudeau is fail­ing the tax­payer. When he was run­ning for prime min­is­ter, he promised he would bor­row no more than $10 bil­lion per year, and bal­ance the bud­get again by 2019. There’s no plan to bal­ance the bud­get for the next 27 years. You can count on Canada’s Con­ser­va­tives to give tax­pay­ers a voice. We will al­ways stand up for lower taxes and a bal­anced bud­get. —Rob Moore, Con­ser­va­tive Party shadow min­is­ter for At­lantic is­sues
