Bare denial

After the firestorm this week surrounding the Cons' apparent plan to break their promises on equalization, PMS' provincial and federal allies alike are going out of their way to say that nothing's been set in stone - while of course refusing to suggest what else might be on the way instead.

It's certainly for the best if there is indeed some chance that the Cons will go back to the drawing board and decide their promises are worth keeping. But given the Cons' track record, it's easy to wonder whether this is merely another case of their planning to take credit for "solving" a problem of their own making by eventually offering something slightly closer to their promises than the leak would suggest.
