A contrarian view on the the provincial budget

If you want my thoughts on the provincial budget, you should check out Moncton CBC Information Morning tomorrow between 7 and 8 am. I think they asked me to comment assuming I would have a contrarian view.

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t mind tax cuts, energy HST rebates, etc. but I strongly believe that the government should be seriously acting to stop our population decline through a sustained economic development program.

It’s actually quite surreal. If Ontario was losing population it would be a national crisis. If Ontario had seen a 40% increase in Equalization payments, it would be a national crisis.

In New Brunswick, this is considered ‘good news’ or at least not worth discussing.

Weird, huh?

    Check out my latest post, which is also appearing in your favorite newspaper tomorrow. Your number crunching was just too superb to ignore (and give credit where credit is due).

    Sorry, bud, you’re famous now. How’s it feel?

    Now, I’m famous? Thank you to all my fans out there. I’d like to thank the Academy and all the little people that made this real.
