Maybe something needs to come off the table

Recently, the government commenced an extensive round of consultations around the province to get a sense of how they should deal with the financial mess we now find ourselves in.

To get people in the right frame of mind and thinking about just how serious that mess is, they have asked departments to come up with plans to reduce their spending by a whopping 30 per cent. The media, smelling blood, raises the spectre of layoffs in the public sector.

The unions are quick to point out, that during the election campaign, the Liberals — from Dwight Ball himself — said “there would be no pink slips.”
