Believe it or not, the budget didn’t balance itself.

Despite promising only “modest” deficits during the 2015 election, the Trudeau Liberals have been racking up the federal deficit to the point that there isn’t a balanced budget insight.

And now when times are tough and when a rainy day fund is needed, the government is being forced to borrow even more.

True North’s Anthony Furey explains why deficits matter.

Unlike the mainstream media, we’re not getting a government handout. We depend on your generosity. Support True North and independent media in Canada:

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.
