Yeah, I know, we've done it to death already - I'm sure someone can provide links to the threads where it's being discussed, but I'm putting this thread here since it's a news release by one of our "in cahoots" partners.

The recently deposed Ontario government was all about “sound fiscal management.” That mantra justified years of program cuts — and massive tax cuts were supposed to pay for themselves by stimulating the economy. Those Tories insisted to the end that Ontario's books were balanced. This week, however, an independent auditor has uncovered a gaping $5.6-billion deficit.

Yeah, big frigging surprise, except oh wait, the NDP were saying all along that the numbers didn't add up. But poor Dalty-walty just had his poor little self taken totally by surprise, poor poopsie.

Sorry, the righteous anger just doesn't seem to be getting old for me.
