Ottawa, ON – Yesterday, the Liberals tabled their Fall Economic and Fiscal Update. We found out that they are borrowing an extra $32 billion over the next five years—with no plan to pay it back.

"Since the Liberals were elected, the economy hasn’t created a single additional full time job,” said Candice Bergen.  "Not only has the plan failed, Liberal tax hikes and red tape are making things worse.  They’ve cancelled tax credits that help families and hiked taxes on job creators.”

Government officials confirm that GDP growth will be lower compared to the projections in Budget 2016.  Economists from TD Bank and the Bank of Montreal have publicly called on the government to halt their new plans for additional spending.

"When it comes to managing the economy, you don’t get a second chance.  The Liberals need to stop their failed tax and spend policies and start standing up for Canadians” concluded Bergen.
