Jim Flaherty Budget, January 2009

Jim Flaherty has presented his budget, but does he himself believe in it? Too many incentives for neo-cons in order to survive – maybe too much government for Flaherty’s liking.

The NDP and the Bloc have rejected it as not good enough given the economic situation. The mayor of Toronto, David Miller, feels the same way. Labour unions are not happy either and neither are consumer groups. Iggy is going to sleep over it. Let's see what Iggy has in his bag of tricks tomorrow.

    I have the feeling that Iggy will ask some concessions and clam victory...

  2. Sad. He will take on the image of Dion over and above his own baggage.
