Budget Election

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: there will be an election triggered by the budget. The Liberals have just said they won't support it, putting all the onus on the NDP. If you're Jack, you've got two options: wait for the Liberals under Dion craft a carefully managed, fully green campaign centered on the environment; or, force an election while you still have a chance to win seats as an NDP that stands for the environment and strong social policy. The longer Layton waits, the worse the retuns will be come election time as the Green Liberals (perception, at least... we'll see if it's true) eat NDP seats in all the urban centers. To say nothing of teh NDP not wanting to give the Green Party a chance to raise money.

I say you linked at Phronk's blog, so I thought I'd pop in and say hi. This has nothing to do with your post, as politics + me = der.

Hope things are well and happy in Alberta. My mom moved there last year, she lives in some tiny place called Hinton.

You probably have no clue who this is, heh. Jen H - girl who had crush on you probably half of my highschool years. I got over you and married a Mike (how could I not?) and have a small herd of children. :)
