Another Ooops

I see in an article by Patrick Brethour in the Globe and Mail that “Since the early days of the pandemic, the federal Liberal government has pointed to rock-bottom interest rates as a key reason why their spend-in-all-directions fiscal approach will not drive Canada into a debt wall …[and] … In the fall economic statement,…… Continue reading Another Ooops

What’s needed

So, another Globe and Mail editorial cartoon, this one by Brian Gable, gets right to the point: Another “watchdog” is going to do exactly nothing.
