If anyone is a testament to the utter incompetence and mean-spiritedness of the Harpercon government it is this man -
I might even say that Jim Flaherty's power and worldly 'success' is ample evidence that if there is a God, she plays no part the daily order of our lives.
While he was the finance minister in Harris' and Eves' era in Ontario Flaherty left a 5Billion dollar deficit in a time of prosperity which he desperately attempted to hide from the voters. Figuring that such incompetence was a qualification to handle an even larger budget, Harper gave him the same post at a federal level. Now he has overseen the largest deficit in Canadian history while simultaneously cutting pensions, public servants, and important social services.
Jim Flaherty is a world-class fool and Tory times are hard times - ALWAYS.
