An analysis of the Ontario budget by Hugh McKenzie

It is interesting to note that the $300 million that the budget allocates to the Post-secondary system.

Hugh does his usual admirable job of a through analysis of the Ontario Legislature tabled budget.

One must wonder what components of this Ontario budget will be lost if the federal budget is blown out of the water with the Liberal-NDP accord, if the BLOC Quebecois-Conservative pairing succeeds in combining to defeat the budget and being a Non-Confidence vote thus triggering a federal election.

The Ontario-federal agreement on special transfers will also become a defeated sum and although the Conservative Leader has 'promised' to fulfill the promises made to the province, one should not trust a political leader - even more so one cast from the same mould as the Harris-Eve Team Destructo.
