Mostly Harmless...

Such is the assessment of the Liberal brain trust regarding the latest federal budget.

Somewhat disappointing, but having already predicted quite a while back that there wouldn’t be an election until the fall, completely unsurprising.

Per Dan Arnold (Calgary Grit):

Dion calls it a “
watered down Liberal budget” and “one mile wide and one inch deep”. Hmm... Either way, I don’t think there was anything in this budget that could easily have been turned into an election issue, even if the Liberals wanted to go to the polls.

Yep. Quite so.
