Some “Nasty Numbers”
Like me, you may be vexed that our debt now exceeds One Trillion Dollars. a 1 followed by 12 zero’s: $1,000,000,000,000. Based on our population of 38,243,251, including Permanent Residents, each man, woman, and child in Canada owes $26,340 in Federal Debt. This is apart from debt of other governments and personal debt. Based on the Government’s own projections, Canada is on track by 2025 to owe $40 billion in debt service charges, if interest rates continue at their historical low. The amount we Canadians pay in taxes to cover interest expenses is set nearly to double within five years. Ouch.
