Free Advice for the PM

In a column in today's Toronto Sun, my friend Marnee Stern offers some free advice to Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Basically, says Marnee, the upcoming Conservative budget should be ... well fiscally conservative.

She writes:
Harper must stay true to his conservative principles. Some things are more important than victory at any cost. Great leaders do not compromise on great issues. Harper should take a reasoned, principled stand.

Why would Harper allow the opposition to write his budget?

You must write it, prime minister. Give us a small "c" conservative budget, as we elected you to do.

Reward hard-working taxpayers and we will reward you come election day. Sensible Canadians don't spend more than they make and they stop digging when they find themselves in a hole.

I hope somebody is listening.
