She also criticized the government for its reported plan to run larger annual deficits than the $10-billion cap Trudeau promised during the fall election campaign.

Ambrose said when the government tables its budget March 22, the deficit could top $30 billion.

Are you concerned that the current government doesn't have such a plan? Are current economic conditions justifying such large deficits? Was it a mistake to spend that $160B between 2009 and 2013?
