A report released by the finance department before Christmas made the point that federal finances are not being all that well handled. Instead of the budget being balanced in 2019, the department said the federal budget wouldn’t be balanced until 2055 unless big changes were made. Budgets don’t balance themselves. Canadians elect politicians to make good decisions not just in the short term, but in the long run as well. It’s something Tustin Trudeau seems to have forgotten.
