Comment: The Liberals claim that government operations are so tight today that meaningful spending cuts would be at the expense of health care and education. On the contrary, in their recent election platform, the Canadian Alliance Party has illustrated several self-evident examples of government waste, indicating that there is plenty of money still to be cut from government spending without touching health care and education.

  • $407,673 to fund the production of a theatrical "Tale of Fantasy" - where else but in the Prime Minister's own riding?
