could be heading toward another financial crisis.
Canada survived the last one, because of measures put in place by previous governments. Measures that would not have been there, if Harper had had his way when Leader of the Opposition, because he pushed Paul Martin to deregulate the banks.
Fortunately, he didn't listen.
We learned through Wikileaks, that Flaherty and Harper really had no plan for the economy, only hoped that their expensive taxpayer funded ad campaign (more than a quarter of a million dollars), dubbed the Canada Action Plan, would lead us to believe that they did.
They had no plan B.
And since then, they have been steadily deregulating, so what will this mean for us?
We're bombing for oil on the credit card and have committed to massive military spending on hardware.
When Harper made a rare public appearance to take a stab at Nycole Turmel, my husband and I both said "My God. Does he ever look awful". He was pale and nervous, without his usual arrogance.
He looked worried.
Now I know why.
