A lot of numbers in the video. Just what do those huge numbers mean to most Canadians?
Conservative Deficit: $81,500,000,000
Average Canadian home price (soon): $200,000
Harper's deficit COULD have bought and built 407,500 new homes!!!
That's the number of homes in ALL of Calgary!
Roughly 1/2 a million homes!!! That COULD have ended homelessness, and STILL kept the Liberal balanced budget numbers of 2005. Imagine the new construction starts! Imagine the construction jobs, jobs, jobs!
Here's another take on it: Entry level homes @ $100,000 per home would net us 1,630,000 new homes for first time buyers!
Our lumber industry would be booming. According to CMHC, at it's peak (2006) our market had 227,000 housing starts. Imagine 1.63 MILLION! That's like 7 years of housing growth!
