i know facts aren't your forte so here's a little info for you.

No matter how you add it up, Harper’s fiscal record is a catastrophe

Since Harper was elected, the federal debt has increased by over $150 billion, wiping out the reduction in federal debt achieved under Chretien and Martin. Not much to boast about there.

Harper governed during the Great Recession.  Thus he ran big deficits during that time.  Trudeau is governing during this COVID economic meltdown and is going to be running even higher deficits, because he has to or we're even more screwed.

The problem isn't the deficits, it's not paying them down afterwards, because Canadians and politicians are cheap and greedy and irresponsible.  They want to have their cake and eat it too.  It's fun to spend money, it's not fun to pay it back.
