Hey waldo, it’s year 9, has he balanced even one budget?

Question, do you think he'll ever balance a budget?

when your favoured Conservative party last governed, it's first year saw a "balance"... but Harper inherited a budget surplus of $13.8 billion... but that proceeded to turn into seven fiscal deficits in a row exacerbated by tax cuts on the order of billions of dollars - 7 deficits in a row!

hey Shady, as you parrot away, what tax cuts do PeePee/CPC/YOU favour; more pointedly what spending cuts do PeePee/CPC/YOU favour?

Yeah, there was this thing called the global financial crisis in 2008 that sent the world into a deep recession.  A recession caused by nothing the Conservative government did.  Then Turdeau was handed a budget almost in balanced, and turned it into deficit spending since taking office.  What's his excuse for 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019?  What's his excuse now, that covid spending has come to an end, and the economy is as great as you suggest it is?  And he's getting increased revenue from record high inflation?  What's his excuse buddy waldo, hey!?

the ever-go-to of Harper having to deal with "theGreatDepression" is a CPC/Conservative canard... in reality, Canada entered it later, its impact was milder and its duration shorter (just 7 months) than that of any other G7 nation.

waldo linkee dump:

=> 6 charts show Stephen Harper has the worst economic record of any Prime Minister since World War II

=> Harper’s economic record the worst in Canada’s postwar history

In 22/23, the federal government will be spending 10 billion more (40%) to service debt than it spends on defence. How long before it is double.

If half our debt servicing costs were added to defence spending we would be over 2% GDP.

Hey remember before the pandemic when they were talking about the low debt-servicing costs due to low interest rates at the time and we were saying the interest rates could rise at any time and they ignored us?

Remember when we were telling them that its better to keep deficits low during better economic times in order to have more debt room available to pay for deficits during the bad times?

Everything we said has come to pass.

Of course. No great wisdom there, it isn't like we haven't seen it before.

since last fall, CPC/Poilievre's attacks against the federal government's safe(r) drug supply policy was purposeful misinformation about drug toxicity and the opioid overdose crisis (as particularly focused on British Columbia). As a testament to that misinformation, PeePee released a video that used a homeless encampment in Vancouver as a backdrop... that attributed community addictions to a “failed experiment”; to the, "deliberate policy by woke Liberal and NDP governments to provide taxpayer funded drugs, to flood our streets with easy access to these poisons".

Poilievre's "solution" to combat the overdose crisis is to tighten up borders, arrest drug dealers, and force people into recovery... you know, essentially what had been the status-quo!

PeePee sponsored an 'Opposition Motion' that took aim at the federal government's harm-reduction policies for drug users, focusing mainly on, "its decision to fund the supply of pharmaceutical alternatives as a replacement for certain illicit drugs to combat the opioid crisis" - the so-called safe(r) supply! In a too-bad, so-sad outcome, Poilievre's motion was just defeated - 209 to 113:

So unimaginative, so limited.

Go away Pierre, go away.

I would be fine with another Liberal NDP Coalition...

Trudeau stepping down would probably go a long way to making that happen.

The only thing that needs to go away is failed work policies like “safe drug sites”.  Imagine crapping on someone for wanting actual substance abuse rehabilitation.  Another coalition?  That means a continued broken Canada.

Speaking of government day to day, how many billions are we wasting every day just paying the interest in Turdeau’s new debt?

It wasn't long ago that your drug policy was continued marijuana criminalization. Your arguments are looking pretty stupid now, eh?

Funny how conservatives like to talk about drug rehabilitation but whenever they have chance to implement such things they just…don’t.
