39 per cent of NB budget is federal cash!

I would argue that Ontario is the big winner of our federal
government's spending. However, the federal government is chipping in
39 per cent of the New Brunswick budget in 2008.

That percentage would be lower if the government spent more like
Quebec. Still, considering that nothing forces the Feds to make direct
transfers, it sure makes a Conservative majority risky for NB
taxpayers...

By the way, no new taxes for NB in 2008. And welfare payments, the
lowest in the country, go up 3%.
