It appears that ithe budget strategy of the CPC has worked. People and pundits have heaved a collective sigh of relief because it was not worse.

Flaherty did not, apparently, compketely slake his blood lust and (directly) destroyed only 19,000 lives. A few dozen more thousand will follow as the consequences work themselves through.

Only the CBC of the important National Institutions was committed to its death bed. Others were just tweaked a little. And we have known for a few years now that the National Broadcaster would be slowly killed off by Harper in his hatred for National facilitators of Canadian Culture, Identity and Unity.

All the major nations have National Broadcasting systems - and most of the minor ones, too. In an analysis of 18 advanced countries, Only the US and New Zealand gave less support to National Broadcasting than Canada does. The average was $87 per capita while in Canada it is $34. The UK (not the highest) is $111.

This cut is part of the `secret agenda`of Harper. His adult life has been devoted to the destruction of Canadian unity and Canadian identity in favour of his dream of a loose association of provinces.

And the chucklers at the fate of the CBC are too blind to se it. If they actually had any sense of Canadianism, they would be up in arms about this: demanding a restoration and increase of funding.

It is tragically funny to see so many who think they are patriots applauding the destruction of Canadianism and calling for more.

No doubt due to your personal involvement.

7,000 of those jobs will be gone to attrition, even the lefties in the media
say many of the others will be bought out to early retirement.

Thing about the CBC cut is that the national broadcaster has little relevance in the 500+ channel cable and satellite universe compared to the "peasantvision" and more limited cable packages of yesteryear. Why does one need to watch "Hockey Night in Canada" when you can get games on TSN or elsewhere? If I want to watch a science-fiction show I can just go to Space. If I want (real) comedy I can go to Comedy and so on and so on.

Hell, "Flashpoint" is one of the better Canadian programs I watched in recent memory and it broadcasts on a private-owned network.

And second, the budget makes some important progress towards the longer-term objective of reining in the costs of programs for the elderly. There had been much speculation before the budget of whether the age of eligibility for Old Age Security would be raised, gradually, from 65 to 67, or whether workers would be given the option of retiring later in exchange for higher benefits. In fact, the budget does both. No figures are attached, but the savings — OAS is the single most expensive program in the federal budget — are potentially enormous.

My only question to this is will it offset the huge loss in taxes we'll see from TFSAs, projected to be in the BILLIONS in future years?

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-o ... le1975461/

As for the budget, it was about what I was expecting - vanilla with little in the way of tough decisions. Even the OAS at 67 is no surprise, gven thta Harper floated the idea a few months ago.

As I said, many who think they are patriots and blow their horns in the profession of that. They are too politically naive and ignorant to know what this is all about or to understand the effects and consequences.

It is beyond credibility that in a budget that claims it is about job creation there are only job destroying measures and nation destroying initiatives.

And the sheep still follow.

I think my only real concerns here are:

1. Hoping the streamlining of the environmental review process retains any teeth. It already doesn't seem to have much in the way of enforcement so I'm not optimistic here.

2. Cutting budgets for transport and public safety is a terrible idea, those guys are already understaffed and overworked. Now they want to give them even less to work with?

3. Really thinking they missed the boat with not fixing the out of control MP compensation policies. It's not that I'm surprised mind you.

Cmon eureka, you fall smack in the middle of that supercilious comment.

I would like to see the gold plated latinum MP's pensions dramatically curbed, but that's just wish full thinking. As for the CBC, I do not want it to disappear, but get it's house in order, which, a 10% cut just might kick start.

Did you look at the figures I gave? We give a little more than one third of the International average in funding now. Only thr USA with one eighth of the Canadian level and New Zealand give less support. We provide not much more than one quarter of the UK level of funding.

And Canada,from its geographical and Constitutional makeup needs a National Broadcaster more than almost any other country.

This is part of Harper's war on Canadianism that has he has been planning for the whole of his adult life. And that is a fact that I can support with scores of Harper statements from the past - but, of course, his psychopathy is off limits.

It's not "how much" the CBC is allocated, it's how the money is spent. So comparisons with other countries are moot.

That's a far stretch intimating Harper is waging a war on Canadianism.

It's certainly not the terminus of CPC incrementalism. Gotta give Harper credit for incredible discipline. But then why not, it's not like his right wing has anywhere to go.

If the NDP ever gets into power, they could learn a lot from Harper.
