The Conservative party’s platform includes a pledge to introduce legislation requiring governments to balance the budget. However, Scheer has said his party won’t balance the budget for another five years. The Liberals, despite promising only “modest” deficits in the 2015 election, ran over $52 billion in deficits in their first three years and are on track to spend $90 billion in deficits if re-elected.
True North’s Andrew Lawton says the Conservative proposal is a good start, but Scheer, if elected, should get to balance more quickly.
