Federal deficit grew $5B in September
Heading toward biggest shortfall in country's history
Ottawa added another $5 billion to its 2009-10 budget deficit in September, the Finance Department reported Friday.
Spending has outpaced revenue for the fiscal year that started in April by $28.6 billion.
That means the government is on track to meet Finance Minister Jim Flaherty's latest prediction that the deficit will reach $56.2-billion for the full fiscal year.
That would be the biggest deficit in the country's history.
Truly stupid people would be embarrassed, if they had any shame.
