His economic strategy anyway. My prediction (actually my hope)...

Cut the GST to 5% and then transfer the remaining 5% to the provinces at the rate of 1% per year. To help cover the cost of the reduction in federal funding he would reduce government funding in areas of provincial jurisdiction and also reduce transfers. The net result would be a dramatic increase in funding power for the provinces and a dramatic reduction in funding power for the federal government. The provinces would have a fresh supply of money to deal with their problems (or cut taxes) and the money would be their's (not dangled in front of them every few years.) Quebec would LOVE this policy and it would be consistent with conservative principles. It would be popular with every provincial premier (more money) of every political stripe.

Your thoughts...

I like your idea, Craig, and I'll bet it will sell well across the nation.

I'm hoping PMSH will work toward less federal interference in areas of provincial jurisdiction. I don't have a problem with a strong central government when they stick to their jurisdiction.
