The GST could have been raised again, the majority Trudeau gov had 4 years to do it.  They had total control over taxation and spending.

I wouldn't be thrilled but I'd support a tax raise before i'd support not paying for our "good times" spending

You assume the government wouldn't spend every penny of it on increased program spending that couldn't be sustained in a down turn. I sure don't.

You need a mind set in government that believes part of investing in the future is not increasing debt and spending obligations when the economy is doing well, so it can react more strongly when it isn't.
