Let's see,, early 90's recession....massive cuts in Federal Spending in 93 & 95, then about 96-97 the economy took off. Between the lack of responsibility to the provinces, (they made all those massive cuts and downloaded everything to the provinces....remember) and a dramatic increase in revenues because of the economy and the new taxes they had imposed, the Liberals ran surplus budgets......ahhhh....I remember it well, as does everybody on this board.
The Liberals went to Afghanistan.....and you didn't hear the Conservatives tell them not to, did you.
Now the Conservatives want to extend Afghanistan and the Liberals are crying out that they don't understand why....must be the Alzheimer's. They can't have it both ways. If the CF were OK to go in 2001 for the Liberals, then the Liberals need the gonads to back them even when they are in opposition.....it should not be a political issue, it should be a Canadian Issue.
