Watch: Finance Minister Has Trouble Saying How Big The Debt Is


During a recent exchange in the House of Commons, Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland struggled mightily when asked about the debt by Conservative Finance Critic Pierre Poilievre. Freeland first mixed up the debt and the deficit, and then struggled to read out the number. In response, Pierre Poilievre joked that “the number is hard for anyone to say, in fairness.” “The Finance Minister struggled to tell us how big the debt was. I don’t blame her, it’s a painful number to pronounce.” All jokes aside, it is certainly true that the rising debt is a big problem for our country.
