The Canadian federal debt is fiscally sustainable because our government owns a central bank which allows any size debt denominated in Canadian dollars to be paid. The federal government is the issuer of Canadian currency; the important question is really what those issued dollars will buy. Canadian money will keep or increase its value as long as the resources of the country are neither overused causing high inflation nor underused allowing significant lost production.

Forget about interest rates, credit ratings, the fiscal balance and the debt-to-GDP ratio. The Canadian government is a monetary sovereign and the risk of default on federal government bonds is zero. Federal spending should be increased as long as there are unused resources, including the talents of 1.4 million unemployed, that could be mobilized to create a more vibrant and prosperous economy.
