Canadian and US National Debt Crisis?

June 7, 2016

Canadian debt is over $600 billion – check here http://www.debtclock.ca/ and the US debt is over $19 trillion http://www.usdebtclock.org/   The question we need to ask is, “Should we be concerned?”

Our Federal government is intentionally going into debt another $9M to fund programs they felt important enough to borrow for. The US has blown through a number of so called debt ceilings over the last few years.

 

The Canadian Taxpayer

I continue to support the Canadian Taxpayer organization, a non-profit fighting for us.

For a list of the issues they are fighting for Ontarian’s click here.   When reading about government waste, I often became frustrated with the feeling helplessness – donating to this organization allowed me to at least feel I was doing something.
