If the media sat down for a minute, during those lull times when they've asked their five questions and then wonder what in heck they are going to do with the rest of their day, they might take out a notebook and paper and do some cyphering ... yes, I said cyphering ... in my best Jethro Bodine.
Carry the "knot" ... "not" ... how ever he did that.
Because the Canadian economy is on life support and the posturing of Flaherty and Harper over their handling of the economy is all smoke and mirrors. I mentioned in this post that Goldman Sachs was already warning their clients not to invest in Canada. Harper put all of our eggs into the tarsands and they are coming up rotten.

Alas, despite the huge wealth of its oil boom, the Alberta government is all but bust: deficits in the billions, schools and hospitals being cut back to pinch pennies, inadequate infrastructure, and accumulated oil money from the past being depleted to pay the bills. All this is the result of basically giving it away to oil companies -- in the middle of a resources boom!This party has no vision. The best they can flog is to lower corporate taxes and somehow it will all go away. Voodoo economics.
The Liberals have cleaned up Conservative messes before and they'll do it again.
On May 2, vote and vote wisely.
