Federal New Democrat Carol Hughes says the Trudeau Liberals were not up front during the election with their promises.

The Algoma Manitoulin Kapuskasing MP says the Liberals promised 10-billion dollar annual deficits.

Hughes says what we got instead in Tuesday’s budget was a deficit three times larger.

Hughes says the Liberals didn’t cost out their programs and says the media let them get away with this during the campaign.

The Liberals have large deficits planned for the next five years.

Hughes says we should be worried by this because Prime Minister Justin Trudeau isn’t saying how he’ll balance budgets after 2021.
