The federal deficit sits at $354.2 billion and the federal debt eclipses $1 trillion. MP Rob Morrison is not impressed.

Morrison stopped by Kootenay Morning on April 26. He said the Conservative party supports the liberal Covid support measures first introduced last spring.

“We do support and did support CERB and CEBA,” said Morrison.

However Morrison said he doesn’t feel there is a economic recovery plan in the Liberal budget.

“There really isn’t an economic recovery plan, they said there’s 100 billion dollars in there but there really isn’t.”

Morrison said Canada is importing massive amounts of foreign oil that doesn’t meet Canadian ethical standards.

“With a 1.7 or 1.8 trillion dollar debt, we have to pay it back…” said Morrison. “If we do not have a strong energy sector or a strong economy the people are going to have to pay the tax because there is no other way to do it.”
