Hi Class! In case you missed it yesterday, here is the link for Canada’s Debt Clock.

What do you think about how much money we owe? Should we pay more taxes to lower our debt? Should we reduce or eliminate services to lower our debt? Should we do both? Should we do nothing and leave it for future generations?
