Budget day in Canada
Yesterday’s Speech from the Throne laid the groundwork for this afternoon’s Budget blah-blah. No one should expect anything bright or innovative from the ReformCons…
Senior’s day? Really? Man, I am SO discriminated against! Like, why NOT a Bald, Bearded, White, Middle aged, Guy Day!!
And if course we’ll get some more of the sordid details on how the government is going to fight the deficit on the backs of the Public Service. Yes, it’s only a salary freeze so far but I would be shocked if there were not some mention of PS pension plan changes or reviews or renewals or some other weasel phraseology.
And it looks like the Olympic “bump” ain’t gonna happen! But polling results are all over the map these days. Voters are a little volatile right now. And as much as I would like to see an election at the earliest possible opportunity, now would not be the right moment for anyone to call or force one.
