Screw the High Road

I've had it with Flaherty. This excellent post by LKO pretty much has summed up my feelings on the antics of the Conservatives in regard to Ontario.

I would like to knee-jerk respond to these comments:
"If Ontario becomes entitled to those kinds of things, then that will distort the system dramatically and will bring strains into confederation," Flaherty said.

Ontario will become a have-not province in Confederation," Mr. Flaherty told Sun Media. "That's very serious for Canada"

Well boo-fucking-hoo. Its enough that we have to worry about the loss of jobs and purchasing power in Ontario, but we have to worry how it affects Canada as a whole and how it affects equalization? Yeah, well, how do I put this nicely? Oh yeah.

Fuck You and the horse you rode in on Mr. Flaherty.

And now this: Finance Minister Jim Flaherty will hold a press conference in Toronto this afternoon to "discuss his expectations" of Tuesday's Ontario budget.

Talk about poisoning the well. What the hell are the Conservatives up to? This is "politics of division" at its worst. If anything it reinforces the oft-touted view that Harper wants to break up Canada.

Lets test the theory and see where it goes. Time to throw caution to the winds and join les autres in the sewers of spite and division.

Time to found the Separatist Party of Ontario. Our motto? Do it to them, before they do it to us.

I don't get Flaherty either. A national Minister of Finance should be working together with the provincial governments to keep the economy going, not trying to sabotage them. While it is true that business taxes in Ontario are too high, it isn't the sort of thing Flaherty should even be calling attention to, let alone harping on.
