The taps to the federal treasury have been opened and Paul Martin is spending like there will be no tomorrow. The election writ has not yet been issued and every day Martin announces more goodies costing billions. A few days ago it was tax cuts, today it was $9 billion for military planes and dealing with the residential school issue. Tomorrow, who knows? Strange behavior for a former Finance Minister famed for fiscal responsibility and cutting the deficit. It seems that the Liberals have embarked on a costly initiative to "buy" the impending election. I hope that the majority of voters think twice before "selling" their votes to re-elect a corrupt and tired administration.
