I have to ask..

:"What we've seen over the past little while is a change in what's
expected of advisers," said Claude Danik, executive director of policy
for the Canadian Association of Professional Employees, which represents
over 13,000 economists and social scientists who advise the government
on public policy.:"

what the hell do we have that many economists for?

isnt that a tad much?

With the Consrvative majority there is no more need to ask what Canadians want, so Harper can do what the elected Conservatives want!

... and health care, and transfer payments to provinces that can't get their sh1t together, and buying off Quebec, and "entitlements" to First Nations, and social programs with no purpose and results, and, and, and.



You forgot a few things.
