As a resident of Ontario, I expect my Premier Dalton McGuinty to be responsible for his budget and stop blaming Ottawa for his priorities for his vision of Ontario. Our premier is making decisions regarding Green Jobs and our future but should look to the taxpayers in Ontario to sustain his vision. The same level playing field for those who live in in Toronto should be required. Mayor David Miller is exporting his waste to the US and London, Ontario this is simply WRONG. Your lack of political will have shifted the burden to the Americans and residents in the London, Ontario for your garbage. Toronto residents should be held accountable for their production of garbage as their consumption of energy. Look no further in how a Union or Federation can be broken when some refuse to tackle their own problems.

If Greece is not the tipping point who is?
Legendary futures trader, Dennis Gartman, says the euro has had it, and has a long way to go before it finds a bottom.

Is the province of Quebec our Greece?
To make it a little clearer with Tables How ugly is this?
The Federal Minister of Finance has established, at the request of the Prime Minister, an Expert Panel on Equalization and TFF to re-examine the operation of Equalization and Territorial Formula Financing. Its detailed Terms of Reference are set out in Annex A. This Panel is to report to the Minister before the end of 2005, so that the Government of Canada can receive its advice before deciding on the new formulas that, from 2006-07 onward, will allocate Equalization and TFF among provinces and territories respectively.-Expert Panel on Equalization and Territorial Formula Financing - Website
