Canada's Conservatives have so little faith in their economic "management skills", that they're asking Canadians to support a budget before we even see it, in their most extraordinary and infantile pre-campaign campaign ads. Disgusting. These hate-mongers want "cooperation" like they want same-sex marriage.
Our MPs - and ALL Canadians - should take a bit of a "truth pill" before believing anything in the Harper/Con budget:
Ralph Goodale, Paul Martin, et al left Canada with a balanced budget (9 consecutive balanced budgets actually), and a 12 Billion dollar surplus held as a contingency fund.
Harper's Conservatives not only dug the 13 Billion dollar hole that we are currently in BEFORE any bailouts of adjustments were made for the "newly discovered" (by Harper-Flaherty, at least) economic woes, but they also squandered the 12 Billion dollar Liberal surplus.
13 Billion + 12 Billion = 25 Billion
25 Billion (with a capital B). Most Canadians stop fathoming large amounts of money pretty much once the number hits a Million $. To most of us, that's a huge sum. Imagine 1000 Millions x 25!!!
While our MPs will have plenty to dig into with the upcoming Harper budget, we MUST ask, "Where, Mr. Harper/Deficit Jim, did the 25 Billion Dollars go?" The biggest financial boondoggle in Canadian history.
