Aren't You Glad These Guys Aren't Doing Your Tax Returns?

From the Hill Times:

"The Hazardous Materials Information Review Commission is targeted for a 20 per-cent reduction in its spending, to $4.5-million from $4.7-million"

I don't know if it was the fault of the author, or the special math formula that the NDP use, but cutting a budget from $4.7 million to $4.5 million is not a 20% reduction. It's a 4.26 % reduction.

I predict a series of consecutive strong, stable, national majority conservative governments if this keeps up.

Just saying.

I am not here today to bury Brigitte the Page. I am here to use her You Tube moment to make the point that 67 years ago thousands of Canadians, most of whom were her age or younger, were prepared to sacrifice themselves to preserve freedom and democracy and those journalists who covered it and analysed didn't need to create a fairy tale, didn't need to spin spin spin."
