Isn't this a switch from 2015 when the Conservatives and NDP were vehemently opposed to running a deficit?
Justin Trudeau said his Government would not be in a deficit by 2019. Yet here we are, and he has no plans to get out of deficit.
While Andrew Scheer has now pledged to be in deficit for five years (if he were elected PM).
Not to be left out Jagmeet Singh said in 2017 - "I don’t have a firm line on balanced budgets. But there’s no way I would ever accept austerity.” Since Canada is running a deficit, it doesn't look like Singh would be opposed to running a deficit if he were elected PM.
So when did deficits become Vogue when in 2015 being deficit was the boogeyman?
