Bill Morneau has tabled the Liberal government’s final budget in advance of the fall election. The budget has tens of billions of dollars of new spending, and no end in sight for the deficit that the Liberals promised would be gone by this year.

True North’s Andrew Lawton breaks down the numbers.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
