Here’s a link to my column today focusing on Daulton’s crusade.
Here’s a little riddle for you.
Jean Cretien once said that Atlantic Canada and its economic problems were exactly the reason why you need a strong federal government.
Ergo, if Atlantic Canada was strong and economically self sufficient, you might not need as strong a federal government.
We need federal politicians that don’t see their role as doling out riches from one region to the other but that see their role as investing in regional economic development that will limit these economic disparities.
In my opinion, it would be wonderful if we reached a point where the Feds could focus on national issues.
