From Brian Laghi at the G&M:
"The Harper Conservatives are being taken to task by their provincial Alberta cousins, who say Ottawa is failing to inform them of key government policies, treats the unemployed unfairly and falls short in boosting the oil sands."
"The document is the most recent example of Prime Minister Stephen Harper finding himself on the defensive from his own partisans. Last winter, Conservatives criticized a federal stimulus spending package that has increased the projected deficit to $50-billion."
It will be interesting to watch how this develops & if Harper makes concessions to the Alberta Govt. If not this may lead to the Liberals making inroads into Alberta. Sure would be nice if that were to happen!
