If you must stimulate

A little story in today's Ottawa Citizen says "The Manitoba government is delivering another surplus budget — and one with plenty of stimulus to protect Manitoba from the global recession." They're dipping into the reserve fund and reducing their debt payment but they aren't spending money they don't have and calling it prudent. So obviously the governing party is... yes, the socialists. Remind me why we have a conservative movement in this country? Oh right. We don't.
