So Premier Gallant got caught with his hand in the cookie jar again.
This time the one labelled ‘property assessments’ In his never ending quest for more taxpayers money to fritter away I guess he had run out of regular taxes and fees to raise.
Anyway lets think ourselves fortunate – it was only $5.7M he was after. Whew that’s very modest compared to his previous track record of increasing taxes but increasing spending even more. Guess he must be scraping the barrel to find money to invest in another defunct shipyard or failing retailer.
As Margaret Thatcher famously remarked ‘The trouble with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other peoples money’
How good it will be to have the grown ups in charge again.
