Deficit: $34,000,000,000 — Your Share: $1,014

"Government will run $34B deficit for coming year: official" - cbc.ca

The federal government will run a $34-billion deficit in the coming fiscal year, and a $30-billion deficit in the following year, a senior government official said.

The spokesman said Thursday that the federal government will return to running a surplus within five years. [Yes, but only because that government will not be run by the "Conservatives."]

Or $1,909 if you include next year's deficit as well. Better start scrimping!
