LETTER: Robbing Peter to pay Paul?

 ..
..

I think I may have this straight. The P.E.I. government's recent budget announced with great fanfare, the first budget surplus in 10 years, consisting of a surplus of $600,000.

This due in large part to a federal grant of several million dollars to allow the province make infrastructure announcements.

What puzzles me somewhat is that while the federal money allows P.E.I. to have a balanced budget, the federal government giving the money to P.E.I. has a $30 billion deficit.

It is lucky that we did not close any schools recently as it looks to me that there is a lot of arithmetic and accountability needing to be taught to the political classes of this country.
