Having your cake, and eating it too

Here's a completely unsubstantiated report I want to believe:

OTTAWA—The Conservatives may keep some of the personal income tax breaks promised by the previous Liberal government, even though they said during the election campaign they wouldn't do so.

With a budget expected in about a month, sources close to the government say the Tories have much more money to work with than was expected and may keep the cuts, which are already in effect, in order to limit a possible political backlash over taxes. Finance Minister Jim Flaherty is silent on the issue.

Nice to see we finally have a government that actually thinks about the people of Canada. The liberal regime would have kept any extra very quiet, all the while setting up programmes and "studies" to be able to get more of our money to their friends.
