Canada’s debt is now well over the $1 trillion mark. It is at a level never seen in our history, and can be hard to wrap your mind around such a number at all.

Some Canadians simply don’t even think about it because they don’t feel that it actually impacts their lives personally.

But it does.

More debt leads to increased taxes over time, more interest being paid that can’t go to critical services, more inflation which can easily be seen in our current gas prices, as well as the general cost of living as a whole.
