Clement: Federal budget breaks a campaign promise of balanced books by 2019

The federal budget isn’t hitting the mark when it comes to helping small businesses. That’s the message from Parry Sound-Muskoka MP Tony Clement, who says Canadians need help paying their bills, and without that support from the government there isn’t any extra cash to spend at local shops.

Clement calls it a true Liberal budget, with no plans to balance the books.

 

Clement says not paying off the deficit by 2019 goes against a campaign promise, and is bad for the future of Canada.

 

 

Clement says there’s no indication this budget is going to be helpful for the average Canadian.

 

 

The federal budget included $1.3 billion in spending, most of which was already announced. The deficit is higher than expected at $28.5 billion, and won’t be paid off in two years as promised.
