The Canadian government tabled a $28.5-billion deficit budget for
2017-18 Wednesday that includes some tax increases, but still no plan to
return to a balanced budget.
Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s
federal budget, called “Building a Strong Middle Class,” includes a
deficit projection for 2016-17 of $23 billion, rising to $28.5 billion
by 2017-18 and down to $18.8 billion by 2021-22.
