Real Change: A New Plan For a Strong Middle Class (page 69)


JUSTIFICATION

September 2019 - The Liberals pledged to maintain spending levels and to maintain current planned increases during their mandate. In the first part of mandate, the Liberals differed expenditures into the future and, thus, did not maintain the spending levels. For this reason, the Polimetre rated the promise as broken during the mandate. In the second half of its mandate, which is when Harper's pledged spending increases were to start, the Liberal government injected additional resources each year. Consequently, it maintained and even surpassed the planned increases. Consequently, at the closing of the Polimetre Trudeau, this promise is reassessed as kept partially. The 2015 Harper budget planned an increase of $184 million for 2017-2018 from the base financing of $20.1 billion in 2014-2015 to the National Defence spending levels and $377 million for 2018-2019 and $580 million for 2019-2020. When we look at the Departmental Budgetary Expenditures from the National Defence, here are the numbers for total gross budgetary expenditures: GROSS / NET 2014-2015: $20 383 870 000 / $19 945 985 000 2015-2016: $19 990 643 000 ($393 227 000 less) / $19 545 115 000 ($400 870 000 less) 2016-2017: $19 779 153 000 ($211 490 000 less) / $19 281 781 000 ($263 334 000 less) 2017-2018: $20 573 760 000 ($794 607 000 more) / $20 228 058 000 ($946 277 000 more) 2018-2019: $21 533 229 000 ($959 469 000 more) / $21 176 557 000 ($948 499 000 more) Following the planned increased by Harper in 2015, the 2017-2018 spending level is supposed to be around $20.3 billion and the 2018-2019 spending level is supposed to be around $20.7 billion. We can see that the gross budgetary expenditures presented by the National Defence surpass these levels.
