Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP, Cathy McLeod says what we do what we do know is the new government is not going to keep it’s promise around 10 billion dollars in terms of deficit.
“They’re borrowing a lot of money and it’s a lot of money we don’t have and it’s going to have to be paid back by our grand children, our great grandchildren, and children… It’s very well to say as they did during the campaign, we’re going to have a back into balanced budget by 2019 but if you don’t have plan to get there that’s realistic, then it’s not appropriate. So I think mostly, we need to watch what the fiscal situation is going to be.”
Mcleod says she will be most watchful to what the deficit projections are tomorrow, mostly because it was a lot of work supporting Canada in having the best system in the world in terms of banks, debt record, and job creation through the global recession.
She says the Conservatives got back to a balanced budget and that she hates to see unnecessary spending.
Cariboo-Prince George MP Todd Doherty was unavailable for comment, although the Mayor of Williams Lake says he spoke to the Committee of the Whole last week, and said he was concerned that smaller cities will not be recognized when it comes to spending on infrastructure.
