Astonishing Levels of Debt

This is just astounding.

The Liberal Party of Canada is carrying more debt than many small nations. One of their campaign slogans — There’s Over 30 Million Reasons to Vote Liberal — takes on new meaning in this light: if they don’t get enough seats elected, how are they ever going to repay this money?

Why, in any event, would any bank — let alone 13 different ones — lend a political party this much money? Politics is a game on which ou place large amounts of risk money: it’s gambling.

Banks aren’t suppose to gamble.
