Stephen Harper's Conservatives ARE The Worst Fiscal Managers In The History Of Canada!
Conservative Party supporters like to advance the myth that their party is the party of 'fiscal conservatism'. This is total B.S.
Put aside all of the outrageous wasteful spending (Bev Oda's orange juice - flying limos to India - fighter jets, etc etc) .... the main reason for this ongoing record Canadian deficit is the massive giveaway that the Canadian corporate sector is receiving from the Harper administration. Corporate tax cut after tax cut has put the nation into a fiscal mess ... and Harper is to blame.
"In a speech to the Chamber of Commerce in Fredericton, Flaherty said the deficit will jump to $26.2 billion — up $5.1 billion from the $21.1-billion estimate in his March budget. The fiscal books won't be in a surplus position until 2016-17. That's a year later than he had predicted.
