The Fight Isn’t Over Yet

The Opposition might have won the battle over public funding, but it can’t stop there. The fact is that there are still a number of provisions in yesterday’s Economic Statement that are still intolerable. First of all, the lack of any kind of real stimulus package for the economy is unconscionable. Our economy can’t wait till Budget is brought done. By then it could very well be too late to save the auto and forestry sectors, amongst others.

Then there is the removal of the right to strike of civil servants, the removal of the ability for women to fight for their rights and these imaginary asset sales to “balance the budget”. Thanks, but no thanks Mr. Harper. As an Ontarian I’ve been there before, and ya know what, I never wanna go back.
