Flaherty needs to work on his timing


Real world:

"Canada's six-year housing market boom is officially over," BMO Nesbitt Burns deputy chief economist Doug Porter declared yesterday, commenting on the lacklustre numbers. "Sales are melting faster than this year's snow pack."

Fantasy land:

Minister of Finance to Address the Durham Region Association of Realtors

The Honourable Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance, will be the guest speaker at a luncheon hosted by the Durham Region Association of Realtors on Friday, April 18, 2008. The Minister will speak at approximately 1:00 p.m.

The Minister will discuss Canada’s strong economic and fiscal fundamentals, and how well Canada is positioned to meet the global challenges ahead.

Jim

What if you go & no one shows up other than an angry mob with torches & pitchforks.

I realize that you will think you are right no matter what.

They certainly don`t call you "parking lot Jimmy" for nothing.

News Flash to readers and attendees:

O'Flaherty has unofficially but rightfully been stripped of the "Honorable" designation.

His new designation is now "Larcenous Leprechaun."

CON Jobbers Create New 10 Per centers...

Authored By Deceivin' Stephen Harper


Hey, I may be a LYING, DECEIVING, FASCIST Dictator.

I may not "ply by the rules".

I may take every opportunity to try to create the impression of a widespread "foil hat" conspiracy against my CONservative brethren.

But, hey, at least my CONservative government is the only one that SUCKS and BLOWS at the same time!

April 18, 2008: Flaherty lives in never never land. I know someone who is trying to sell a home in Oakville (gorgous place). Last year were offered close to a million...this year less than $800,000. Where does this dingbat (along with the rest of the idiots who sit on the Cons. side of Parliament get their information! Somewhere along the line, Flaherty played hockey for Princeton (that is how he got there...not on his marks) and I think he must have had his skull fractured more times than he admits. The man is a prime example of scrambled brains. To be burdened with this indiidual as a Finance Minister should be designated "torture" for all Canadians who pay taxes
