The Façade and Reality of the Canadian Economy

By Alan Danesh

 

The Conservatives claim to be true custodians of the economy. Yet as the figures below from Statistics Canada and International Monetary Fund clearly document, Canadian economy was being rapidly hollowed out in the last six years of the Conservative rule. The Total Balance of Payments deficits for 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 are listed below: They represent a dramatic reversal of the massive the Balance of Payments surpluses of earlier years that the Conservatives inherited:

 

2005                       $+21,910  x  million

2006                    $ +17,953   x  million

2007                     $ +11,307    x  million

2008                    $ +3,470    x  million

2009                    $ -40,341   x million

2010                     $-58,419   x million

2011                     $-47,195  x  million        

2012                   $ -59,911   x  million

2013                 $ -56,254     x  million

2014                 $ -41,480     x  million
