1.8 Trillion Household Debt, where do you stand?

Finally something that is easy to follow and set up in Life Stages.    

What I found interesting is that 12% of Canadians hold 43% of the National Household Debt. That tells me that 88% of Canadians are very responsible with their debt.   

70%  of The National Debt is Mortgages which 82% of Canadians feel is Good Debt and 84% of Canadians feel that Real Estate is a good Long-Term Investment.  With a large percentage of debt at low mortgage rates, it is essential for The Bank of Canada to maintain these low rates to ensure stability in our economy?
