I don't dispute that. Doug Ford's government has become what we maritimers would still casually curse at and call out as, despite being contemporarily inappropriate; "Retarded" He's cutting when his problem is revenue. NS Liberals cut subsidies to programs that generated revenue, and then they bust unions, and blame the previous NDP or Conservative provincial governments. Magically, they find the budget for big promises each election year. Federal government blame here from me falls on it being all Liberal here, in and out of government since 1980, a 4 year shot for a PC seat and NDP seat back in the 80s and 90s. All Liberal otherwise. 40 years of Liberals for most of what is now the one riding. 1 in 3 kids here are in poverty, drug addicts roam around and hustle in plain sight, there is no funding for any services.
