Politicians go after votes with smoke and mirrors

NANAIMO – Federal cabinet ministers are criss-crossing Canada to ‘sell’ their government’s latest budget.

To the Editor,

Federal cabinet ministers are criss-crossing Canada to ‘sell’ their government’s latest budget.

Finance Minister Jim Flaherty chose B.C. to kick off his unique song and dance routine.

According to Flaherty, the 2015 federal budget will be balanced. That just happens to be the year the Conservatives will be sucking up to Canadians for their vote. Premier Christy Clark is currently testing her own hocus-pocus version of this sleight-of-hand balanced budget trickery.

An addiction to smoke and mirrors is probably the only thing Flaherty and Clark have in common, as she is projecting billion dollar future revenues from liquefied natural gas exports he is projecting billion dollar future revenues from Canadian off-shore tax fraudsters.

Obviously they both have high hopes.
