Why didn't Canadians get a tax cut in the 2007 budget? Easy, because Quebecers got one instead - paid for by the Rest of Canada, of course. This after Charest and other Quebec leaders constanly saying how desperately they needed more money from Ottawa to fund social programs, thus exposing the Big Lie that is the fiscal imbalance.
But what does Jim Flaherty think of taking other peoples' money and literally handing it over to the people of Quebec? He's fine with it.
