He is a follower of Friedrich Hayek and Roger Douglas, and is charting a neoconservative path for Canada.
What this means basically, is that he's starving the federal government, so he can tear down our social safety net, paving the way for a free market economy.
However 'free' is a bit misleading, because what it really means is that we will 'pay' for everything, including public health care.
Of course very little of this has been revealed by our media, who still believe he wants to balance our budget. No self respecting neo-con would ever balance a country's budget.
I'm doing something a little different with my blog, trying to organize archives, etc. so I'm using this page to link my stories on Flaherty and his misfires.
Feel free to use anything. This page will give you some tips on getting rid of Mr. Flaherty.
