Why I didn't vote for Harper

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

So let's see: increase income tax rates for taxpayers who have the least money (although that may be offset by other rate cuts), ignore climate change (indisputable and unconscionable), and scrap a deal with natives while tensions rise over land claims (both stupid and mean-spirited). While there is some good stuff in Canada's first Conservative party federal budget since the early 1990s, and while I'll personally probably benefit financially from it, my opinion is still, on balance, this: Mr. Harper, your budget sucks.

Not that I'm surprised, mind you.
