    Where the ()ell is this money coming from? Canada didn’t have a deficit before the Liberals took over.
    What is the total of JT’s spending spree at now???
    Canada should dip into the A-hole JT’s trust fund to pay off his spending spree!!!

    We were adding 70 Million a day to the national debt. Now it’s 690 Million a day. How do you all feel about that?

      Canada was write off the day we elected Trudeau. I don’t see how Canadians don’t deserve what we got.

    This is absolutely A BS story. This gov’t never had perspective in any of their spending for the last 5 years, and to talk like this gov’t just lost perspective now is Incredibly misleading. This POS Liberal Party is the virus we should be trying to rid ourselves of first.

  14. Future generations better start looking at other place on earth to live. The taxes will be crippling years from now. It will take 30 years of conservative leadership to fix this, maybe more. I do know that Trudeau will be in Europe enjoying his trust fund.

  15. Since we’re all gonna die anyways, let’s spend every single dime we have left

    Trudeau is going to bankrupt 🇨🇦Canada

  17. You know this clown can’t even buy a gun legally


  19. Get back to work parliament!!! Why is the left so determined not to have parliament sit. If Harper did this they would be up in arms.

    Conservative party needs to be voted in next election. Trudeau has destroyed our economy.
