There is some harsh criticism of the Liberal government's first budget from the opposition parties. Interim Conservative Leader Rona Ambrose says the spending and deficit projections contained in the document are worse than she ever imagined. (The Liberal government is planning to pile on more than 100-billion dollars in public debt over the coming years as part of an ambitious strategy to revive economic growth over the long haul. The budget predicts big spending on investments like infrastructure will boost the country's real gross domestic product by 0.5 per cent this year and one per cent in 2017-18.)
