At Crazy Stevie's, no decision is ever final

So how's that strong, decisive government working out so far? In just the last week, word has come out about major backtracks or exceptions to three of the Cons' supposedly most principled actions, including:
- an environmental carve-out for the industry which figures to cause the most damage as it expands;
- a "clarification" which will effectively undo a policy against subsidizing investments outside Canada; and
- discussion of a funding side deal for Nova Scotia, which would be labeled as something other than "equalization" in an effort to claim that a consistent formula was applied.

Somewhere, Brent Fullard is grinning from ear to ear - while he orders his next ad buy.

    I'm really enjoying the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?
