Lone voice crying in the woods

Repost

Kathleen Curran from Edmonton, Canada writes: Ian - the answer is... we need to qualify the definition of "have not". A few years of equalization will be necessary in order to build the infrastructure necessary for long term finanicial independence, but there should definitely be a time line.

The funny thing about the comments regarding this issue is that everyone wants the same end-result, for the Atlantic provinces to become more economically stable. This will require time, it will not happen overnight.

Now for my question to individuals from non-atlantic provinces... Would you prefer NS and NL to receive equalization indefinitely or on a short-term basis coupled with fair royalty sharing? If you cut equalization in lieu of royalities noone benefits, not Newfoundlanders, Nova Scotian's or any other Canadian. Indefinitely or short term... you choose.

Those who are making comments that NL has been accepting handouts for toooo long should be wholeheartedly throwing your support behind Premier Williams and any MP that is advocating for Harper to honor his word. (I wish I could take back my vote)
