The government committed $500 million over two years for auto-sector innovations and $305 million to improve internet access in rural areas.

The government has also set aside a $3 billion contingency fund.

Schellenberger especially likes this aspect of the budget.

Since coming to power in 2006, the Conservatives have added $200 billion to the national debt after inheriting an $11 billion annual surplus from the previous government.
