The Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock Conservative MP Jamie Schmale is disappointed with the federal budget.

He says the budget includes a deficit of $29.4 billion.

Local Accountant Hugh Nicholl says he thinks a lot of people in Haliburton County are concerned about the total amount of deficits they are projecting in the next four years.

Nicholl says if the economy picks up residents will be happy but if it doesn’t they won’t be.
