Canadians are ignorant of their real level of debt according to a new poll.

    I like the BC figures compared to other locations, I wouldn't have expected that...But I would also suggest that most Canadians ARE NOT ignorant of their debt to income ratio, (saying 48% vs actual 162%) I would suggest they simply didn't understand the question as it was posed..In 25 years of lending I have encountered very few clients who are completely out of touch with their finances...

    162% was announced first time about 2 years ago and it became kind of a "household figure". I wouldn't be surprised if that number today is lot higher today.
