Statement by MP Zimmer Regarding Fitch Downgrading Canada’s Credit Rating

FORT ST. JOHN – Bob Zimmer, Member of Parliament for Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies, issued the following statement regarding Fitch downgrading Canada’s credit rating to a AA+ rating:

“This has always been my concern as the Liberal government continues to spend billions upon billions of dollars with no real plan to restart our economy while decimating our natural resource sector.

“This unprecedented spending was bound to catch up to the Liberals and this downgrading of our credit rating may just be the beginning. It will be our children and our children’s children who will pay the ultimate price in shouldering this national debt.”
