You’re an opposition finance critic and you learn that the province is projecting to run a $350 million surplus (if you include hydro and the other crowns) and the economy expected to grow by 2.1 per cent compared to 0.7 nationally during an economic crisis. What would your response be?

“This only reflects the first half the year. The bad six months of the year have not been reported” said Borotsik in the Freep.

Thank you captain obvious. It’s the second quarter report. Most of the second part of the year (fiscal) hasn’t happened yet. You can’t report on what hasn’t happened yet.

And when it does happen, the province will still run a surplus. Again.
