Hang on ... this can't be right:
Two-year $101B deficit 'worse than expected:' Flaherty
Government can't say when it will balance books again
... In a hastily-released fiscal update, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said the severe economic recession means that, between now and 2014-15, Ottawa's budget shortfall will total more than $160 billion, the government said.
I'm confused ... what is this "deficit" of which you speak? We here at CC HQ were once assured that there would be no deficit.
I'm sure it's all just a misunderstanding.
