I'm not worried at all. Every country in the world has added debt. If Canada didn't do so it would have been stupid. Every other country would be better off than Canada because........fiscal conservatism. Our debt is based on absolutely nothing just like everyone else. And has been used to bail out predatory banking practices and market practices. If countries default what will anyone owe that actually has any value? Binary code? Ones and zeros? Let the system fail. It's all a joke anyway. And losers who have just a little more than those in poverty will spout off modern economic stupidity and defend billionaires and corporations. There is no such thing as a free market at all anymore. Supposedly "credit" was important to protect.

I wonder if our friends on the right also think the OAS and GIS cheques many of them receive each month are a waste of money?

And you think there's similarities there? :200:

this is a terribly naive way to think. Debt is bad. Very bad.

Really? Hmmmm. I guess Target shouldn't have walked away from their debt here in Canada. Or many businesses who have recently declared bankruptcy. Or individuals. Which illustrates how imaginary debt is. And how benign debt is.

Oh heck, don't forget Mr. Wonderful Kevin O'Leary (the drunk boater) ran away from his leadership campaign debt and he seems to be doing OK.

Let's not start taking financial advice from posters whose entire economics education stems from watching Pierre Poilievre's unhinged and unknowing rants on Facebook.

Successful people, corporations and nations have been using debt with stellar results for a lot longer than Pierre has been an "expert." Just because conservatives only use debt to give the wealthy tax cuts doesn't mean debt should never be used.

The Liberal's use of debt to support Canadians is the reason people didn't starve and lose their homes. It's the reason jobs and the economy bounced back, while the Americans are going to have to borrow a couple trillion to jumpstart their economy.

Conservatives will throw a tantrum demanding an audit, and then when the audit comes out throw another tantrum about ‘dumping’ money on an audit.

Again, drifting to Off Topic territory

The link in my original post did not condemn taking on debt in times of emergency. Nor is this a Left/Right issue. This has absolutely NOTHING to do with OAS and CPP and GIS.

For those that actually took the time to read the linked material, it is obviously about government rushing to toss money out into the landscape, willy nilly, and then afterwards coming to the late realization that had they thought it out beforehand, they could have saved the taxpayer plenty of unnecessary debt.

It would be awesome if You actually read the linked article before replying, just once.

As for an audit, that is the one area the federal government cut back on to the point that Auditor General is wringing hands waiting for funding that never comes nowadays.

How bloody convenient.

The real story is how did a government run such a large pandemic program that saved so many lives and livlihoods, with so little fraud?

It was literally 99% successful.
