Trudeau by the numbers: It’s bad
In his latest budget Trudeau predicts deficits going forward of $19.7 billion in 2020-21; $14.8 billion in 2021-22; $12.1 billion in 2022-23 and $9.8 billion in 2023-24, with no end of deficits in sight.

With 96 days to go until the Oct. 21 federal election, Canadians would be wise to disbelieve anything Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tells them about the state of federal finances going forward.

That’s because of what he said in the lead-up to the Oct. 19, 2015 election that brought him to power.

Back then he said under his leadership the federal government would record three years of modest deficits, followed by a $1 billion surplus in the current fiscal year, 2019-20.

“I am looking straight at Canadians and being honest the way I always have,” Trudeau said.  “We’ve said we are committed to balanced budgets and we are. We will balance that budget in 2019.”

Now let’s consider what happened.

What is really scary is that there is a better than even chance this buffoon will be re-elected.
God help Canada.
