BC man pays off $14B debt for NB

Fredericton — A man from British Columbia has paid the $14.4 billion in debt owed by the province of New Brunswick.

“Phew!” Finance Minister Cathy Rogers said in a press conference, wiping her brow with her forearm. “Honestly, I was starting to get nervous; $13.4 billion in debt, fine, but $14.4 billion? We were starting to push our luck with creditors.”

The generous donation comes courtesy¬†of Greg Chambers, known by many as Good Guy Greg. “I just wanted to help in any small way I can,” Chambers said.

Apparently, this is not the first times Chambers has paid it forward. A report from 2011 claims Chambers once borrowed $5 only to repay the loan with $10, among many other acts of kindness.

Rogers confirmed the payment has cleared. “We received the e-transfer last night and immediately paid off all outstanding liabilities with our creditors. I have offered to reimburse Mr. Chambers for the $2 transaction fee. We still have no cash, but I was able to get a payday loan.”

New Brunswick is still projected to have a deficit at the end of the fiscal year due to its continued use of payday loans and impulse corporate welfare.
