NDP Government doubles down on unrealistic path to balance
“I’ve said it before, but the government is basically using the power of their imagination to make their path to balance. The update on that plan they provided today, an overtly political pamphlet tacked on to the actual Q3 numbers, confirms how unrealistic it is.
The entirety of their plan consists of holding expenses flat, an unlikely move for this government, and having resource revenue increase until the deficit is gone.
They’re using the uncertainty of the energy market to cover for a number they pulled out of thin air, a number that just happened to balance their budget for them.”
