Canadian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Chrystia Freeland has revealed she had to cancel her Disney+ subscription due to the rising cost of living.
Freeland made the comments during an interview with ‘The West Block’ host Mercedes Stephenson from Global.
Amongst discussions of recent GST cheques being sent out, tax cuts, etc. Freeland spoke on her personal decision to cut Disney+.
As a way to help mitigate rising costs of living, Freeland says “as a mother and wife, I personally look at my credit card bill once a month.” Freeland ultimately made the decision to cut Disney’s monthly streaming subscription.
“I said to the kids, “You’re older now, you don’t watch Disney now.” Let’s cut that Disney+ subscription,” Freeland added.
Freeland herself notes that cutting a monthly subscription won’t solve the woes many Canadian families have currently.
“It’s only $13.99 a month that we’re saving but every little bit helps,” Freeland says. However, the finance minister also states she is taking a similar approach to the federal government’s spending.
