‘What does that even mean?’: Senators question Trudeau’s philosophy of ‘taking on debt so Canadians don’t have to’

Senators are questioning Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s philosophy of “taking on debt so Canadians don’t have to” after approving another $51.2 billion in pandemic relief to jobless workers, starting October 19. “What does that even mean?” asked Senator Yonah Martin, Deputy Leader of the Opposition in the Senate. “Does the Prime Minister not understand public debt must be repaid by public money which comes from taxes?” The philosophy has lead to jaw dropping expenditures with close to no regard to the future, with Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland telling Senate on Thursday that it “would not be prudent” if they were to estimate Canada’s fiscal deficit for 2020, according to Blacklock’s Reporter.
