Lets see if we can get this straight:
1) Government revenue is up nearly $600 million from budget (7.7 per cent)
2) Government spending is up $531 million from budget (7.4 per cent)
3) Total provincial government debt is scheduled to drop by only $156 million
The boom times are here, so why can't we pay down the debt in a significant way? And why must the politicians spend money as fast as it's coming in?
