Ontario Budget Blues

Just got from doing a live interview on CHCH TV about the Ontario budget.

Ahh, live television -- is there anything worse?

First off I had to stand outside in the chilly wind for about an hour in one of those "remote" interviews where you stand staring at a lens, pretending you can see the host. And then the audio keeps going on and off, which makes for some awkard times.

Must have looked real bright standing on the TV screens with a quizzical look on my face.

Mind you, that look might have come from the Ontario budget itself --- which was kind of like a replay of the federal budget -- a few tax cuts sprinkled in with lots of left-wing spending.

The worst part: No tax cuts for the middle class.

I guess Premier Dalton needs the money in case he wants to give himself another big fat pay

Media Update: Will be talking about the Ontario budget on the Gary Doyle Show at about 12:05 PM EST.

I think Sorbara wins the booby prize for the Ontario Finance Minister who has the worst delivery style EVER. Holy Cow!! After 10 minutes it felt like he was reading a bedtime story instead of trying to inspire the province into believing more promises. His soft tone was more the style of seduction. There was no excitement in what was put forward.

Bottom-line is why should we believe ANYTHING McGuinty promise from now on??
