Every time a union activist like Ms. Payne talks about the federal government's effort to balance the budget (a necessary initiative which I strongly support), they inflate their estimate of the coming layoffs a little more. The fact is that Ms. Payne has no clue how many federal public service positions will be eliminated, and even less of a clue how many positions will be eliminated through attrition and how many will require layoffs. And as for her wish for a dedicated transfer of federal funds to the provinces for post-secondary education, the provinces will never go along with it. They have constitutional jurisdiction over education, and they don't want any strings attached to federal transfers.

I still am dismayed that Canadians could elect a government lead by Stephen Harper and peopled by many who appear to be to the the right of Attila the Hun. From their tough on crime agenda to their assault on social programs they represent the polar opposite to what is good and decent about this country. But i guess, in the final analysis, we get the governments we deserve.

@PaddyJoe: I am glad to hear that you, and all other opponents of tough on crime legislation and government spending restraint, are dismayed. I suspect you will continue to be dismayed for several more electoral cycles.
