I remember something about one of their fiscal cats popping out of the herd about Health Care but I don't recall it addressing the Wait Time Guarantee. Got a link handy for me? thanx
"made-in-Canada". If its any good it would merely compliment our Kyoto agreement in which case so do I, but a over a year and a half after Ambrose claimed to have a "very thorough policy" there is STILL no such beast or anything like it in existence.
As a government, yes they ARE broke. Harper has shot the wad, IMO in the interests of pulling off a sufficient short-term run in popularity to score a majority government. heh. Time for a change of plans. IF they don't add another nickel to the budget (in light of the need for a fiscal imbalance patch as well as Kyoto and Kelowna replacements, I doubt it) and IF Canada's economy continues to grow as predicted (which is questionable) they will have just enough revenues left at the end of their term to deliver the other 1% of the GST rollback. if they book it right.
