Talk about deja vu all over again!
It was unnerving to listen to Alberta Finance Minister Robin Campbell's announcement yesterday that, despite all the dire predictions prompted by the notorious plunge in world oil prices, the province will post a surplus at the end of the fiscal year.
For one thing, it sounded like a complete contradiction of everything the Progressive Conservative government has been saying until a few hours ago. For another, it all sounded so eerily familiar. A lot of Albertans have to be asking themselves: What's with this, anyway?
