Fun facts...

In 1998, debt charges for Quebec were 16.75% of revenue. As of 2011, they were down to 11.47%.

In 1998, debt charges in Ontario were 16.6% of revenue (2.43% of GDP). For 2011, they were down to 8.97% (1.60% of GDP).

Since the onset of the Great Recession, Ontario's debt charges have increased from 1.47% to 1.60%, or 2.86%/year.

At that rate, it would take another 18 years to hit the 2.61% of GDP that we saw in 1999-2000.
