Show Notes

The federal government is more than $1 trillion in debt. It’s borrowing $424 million every day. 

That means that each Canadian is on the hook for about $30,000 in federal government debt alone. If politicians don’t save money that will have to come from Canadians through taxes today, taxes tomorrow or inflation. 

Our Federal Director Franco Terrazzano and our B.C. Director Kris Sims broke down what each party plans to do about the debt, and what they found may surprise you.
