A new federal budget has been giving a resounding failing grade by the opposition Conservatives.

Medicine Hat-Cardston-Warner MP Glen Motz says it is a distraction attempt of the highest level.

Motz says there is only one way most Canadians will view it.

Motz says “It’s really classified as a cover up budget.  Budget 2019 is an attempt to distract Canadians with their own money actually.  Trudeau is trying to bury the SNC Lavalin corruption scandal under $41 billion of brand new Liberal spending.”

Motz says the spending is also coupled with nearly $20 billion in new debt.
