This past week was not a good one for Justin Trudeau. Once again, the SNC-Lavalin Scandal dominated Canadian politics, even eclipsing the tabling of Budget 2019. The Budget itself was little more than a transparent attempt to get Canadians to change the channel. The goodies are to convince people to look in a different direction while this government goes on its merry way. We believe they need to be held accountable for what’s happened with SNC.
Economic activity has slowed down more than expected, and debt levels continue to grow. Budget 2019 continues the Liberals’ history of unnecessary deficits, and it will require tax hikes later to pay the bills.
Justin Trudeau promised in 2015 he’d balance the budget by 2019 – that won’t happen. 2019 will see a federal budget deficit of $20 billion. This is the most expensive cover-up budget in Canadian history. $41 billion in additional spending will not prevent Canadians from holding the Liberals accountable for this attempt to improperly influence the Minister of Justice.
