always a good idea. I want the Tories to spend much less!!! The NDP opposition is upset that the Harper government spent $8-billion less than it promised in its 2011 budget, a budget on which the Conservatives campaigned. They are attempting to sell Ottawa’s frugality as a lack of transparency, but in this case it’s far more sensible to see it as a wise use of taxpayers’ money at a time when governments need to reduce their deficits. Call it leading by example.
