No, increase taxes on the wealthy, end tax evasion, large companies, and end loopholes on tax evasion and also increase spending on social programmes.

@97T4JZCConservativefrom Ontario  answered…2wks

Yes, and reduce military spending, increase taxes on large multi national corporations and slightly increase taxes on the wealthy

@973JC8K answered…1mo

No we should reduce military spending, crack down on tax evasion and increase corporate taxes instead

@96D74VSLiberalfrom Ontario  answered…2mos

No, maybe increase taxes for companies; the bigger they are the more they’re taxed.

the government should reduce the public spending on areas that are more unimportant and focus more on very important things like the military so that they can defend our country if needed

Yes by cutting UNNECESSARY spending, not vital government services.

@95YB89Yfrom Alberta  answered…2mos

Not fully, I prefer to continue these programs but not at the expense of debt but instead focus on other alternatives

Just stop giving away money to other countries who don't even support us.

Why is there even national debt?? Debt is made up and so is inflation and money. Also no.

I would say to be very cautious when cutting things, because it could have a ripple effect which spreads and effects programs and services that society needs. It's easy to say as an example to cut the CBC, but then what about all of the artists/cultural services, as well as segments of society that benefit from having accessible news, and an avenue to show arts and culture? It often goes wrong, and that makes me skeptical. We have to nurture our government and democracy, and make sure that we have sustainable ways to pay for all of the services that we want, and that can include running deficits if it help keeps people afloat, as well as other things such as creating more opportunity with short-term spending.

Taxes are bad because it takes my own hard work and it's used for stuff that I don't even want

@958NSFFfrom Alberta  answered…3mos

I think we should stop buying so much international goods, and start looking at the vision of local produce, just because then it would require more job positions and reduce the homeless population.

@957Q8QXfrom Ontario  answered…3mos

stop spending the money on stuff that is not needed like that election half way through the year that cost 600 million

No, but drastically change what and how much they are spending on various things. Such as cars, computers, political summits/meetings.

@945C4M2from British Columbia  answered…4mos

Depends. Debt is complicated, and so are deficits. Things can go wrong.

@942M326from Nova Scotia  answered…4mos

No, increase taxes on the rich, especially the top 1/10th of 1%, focus on ending tax evasion, closing down offshore bank accounts and increasing taxes on multinational corporations and national corporations and raise the debt ceiling.

@942H7BWfrom Alberta  answered…4mos

No, end tax evasion and tax the rich higher but not too high that they become the middle class. If they earned it then they deserve it.

@93ZVMMSfrom British Columbia  answered…4mos

Yes, but mostly increase taxes on large multinational corporations
