The federal government has racked up so much federal debt that a taxpayer advocacy group is being forced to replace its infamous digital debt clock after it ran out of digits. A video posted by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) shows the federal debt counter reach and pass the $1 trillion mark. Due to the fact that the counter was only built to display 12 digits, the CTF is currently in the process of replacing the clock so that it can continue to display the full amount of debt, which continues to rise. “Yes, the CTF is indeed replacing our debt clock,” CTF Federal Director Aaron Wudrick told True North.
