Trudeau’s record spending exceeds wartime and recession budgets

Conservative critics have warned that the Liberals are potentially setting the country up for a “made-in Canada” recession.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his government have hit a record high in per-person spending for a government, surpassing even the spending of prime ministers during times of war or recession. 

A Fraser Institute study found that in 2019 the federal government spent $9,066 per Canadian, beating the prior record of $8,811 set by Prime Minister Stephen Harper in 2009, following the 2008 financial crisis.
