I looked up the gov of Nefoundland websit and it looks like you guys are going to be recording yet ANOTHER deficit this year 2005.
Where the hell is all the money going. NewF already has the highest debt percapita in the country.$19,200.
What about all that fresh money you guys got from the feds for the Atlantic Accord? Where did it go?
Do these figure include the new money or no? If not then what are the priorityies of the gov't when you get it??

By the sarcasm, I'll assume you're building another vegetable greenhouse or bridge to nowhere or maybe just decided to give Quebec all your hydro for free.

Once the offshore oil sites begin to flow (I don't know when that is), then the Atlantic provinces will have more prosperous economies, just give it some time. Don't forget that their natural resources were being tapped out long before the Western provinces.

Nova Scotia just tabled its budget about a week ago.

I will post the highlights

"revenue up $527.9 million over last year

$259 million extra from Ottawa through funding agreements

fourth consecutive balanced budget

health spending up $218 million, or 9.3% over last year

$30-million fund to repair secondary roads
no new taxes

$63.3 million surplus expected, to go to pay down debt
