...is what I've been telling Libloggers for the past month or two now (like the old guy from Kung Fu). The economy is going South, and Tory prospects will travel with it. Wait, I've been saying, for the crap numbers to arrive! Well, they started arriving today:
OTTAWA–Canada’s red hot labour market caught a chill from U.S. recessionary winds in March as the spreading economic gloom sliced 47,000 full-time jobs from the payrolls in manufacturing-heavy Ontario and Quebec.
You used to hear it argued that elections were nothing more than referendums on the state of the business cycle. By that logic, the next step is to make the Tories own this slowdown/downturn/recession/economic apocalypse. They know it too! What d'you think is behind all the McGuinty bashing lately? They're trying to hand him the hot potato!
