What would Preston Manning do?
His political career was built around the concept of "eliminating the deficit." Now, of course, the party he helped build, which eventually merged with the PCs to form the Conservative Party, has given Canadians the largest deficit in our history.
I haven't heard anything from Manning for a while but I have to wonder what he's thinking about our current fiscal situation.
If Manning was PM today, what would he have done in regards to the recession and the deficit? Would the old deficit fighter have given us the biggest deficit ever?
