At least one other person agrees with me.
From the Telegraph-Journal today:
Federal transfers said leaving province vulnerable
Finances at mercy of cuts in payments by Ottawa, says auditor general

It’s not about the ‘rightness’ or ‘wrongness’ of the current Equalization and transfer system. It’s that we are getting deeper and deeper into this thing while more and more voices are calling for big changes.
