Ontario's net debt rises faster than rest of country

Ontario's net debt has soared by 89% since 2007-08 - a rate faster than that of the federal government or any other province, a new Fraser Institute report says.

The government of Ontario added $126.7 billion to the net debt over that relatively small time period, the report says.

"Quebec has the highest debt per person at $22,300, while Ontario has the second highest with $19,879 per person, followed closely by the federal government at $19,567 per person," the report says.
