One would think and expect a strong Federal Government here in Canada should not allow it's Nation wide economy to follow the American disaster. I know we as Canadians has some economic dependantsy on the US economy, but the Conservatives in Ottawa knew during 2005-6 election that the promised tax cuts will not allow them economic glory as we see today.
They found the American recession an opportune time to blame their inability to control gas prices which have an affect on all industry as well ordinary Canadians. So the carrot on the stick the (tax cuts) the novelty has warn off today when we see GM to cut 970 jobs in Oshawa no kiting, with gas at $1,31.9 A Clear picture of what Ottawa is doing for the economy.
A government that took a 12 billion dollar serplus and they are about to turn the corner towards a deficit. These bunch claim they are great economists they don't have an economic fiber in them if you had to brake down the mental substance they are made off.
