Canada: Balance the Federal Budget
To Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Finance Minister Bill Morneau:
The federal government has run deficits in 37 of the last 50 years, which has resulted in a federal debt of over $612 billion. This debt costs Canadians $26 billion dollars per year in interest payments alone.
We the undersigned call on your government to maintain balanced budgets and put forward a concrete plan to begin paying off our federal debt.
