Today we slip into hearing about the balance of a new budget. Do the opposition parties support it or don't they? The real question is can Mr. Harper be trusted? I say the best proof is past behaviour, so no we can't. He called an election before a fixed date. In the last election he stated the fundamentals of our economy were sound and ridiculed others of opposing views. He said they would never have a deficit. I don't believe he will implement this budget and the money will stay in federal coffers. I also believe the budget could be better crafted to meet Canadians needs.
The opposition parties should use their majority on the Parliamentary committees. They should use that majority to amend the budget to make it more appropriated with time lines to ensure the money reaches the people and projects to help communities, individuals citizens and industries in need.
