Brian: I would agree with you on the debt if our debt was close to the national average but its not. We still have one of the highest per capita debts in Canada.In the last few years debt reduction has resulted in a $150 million reduction in interest payments alone. Now there's a novel way fund social programs--on savings from debt reduction----The government doesn't have to add to the debt to put more money into early childhood education. They just have to make it a priority.
