Wow, there's a lot of haters out there today!
He was the best finance minister the country has ever seen, actually balancing the budget rather than raping the EI accounts like his predecessor Paul
Partisanship aside, he was a fine man and served the country loyally for decades. Give your heads a shake people!
Just because he stabbed relentlessly at the failed social engineer experiments of the left doesn't mean he was a villain. He introduced the TFSA in
his term, something that he promised, income splitting for seniors and many other decent programs during his tenure.
I'm ashamed of you and your apologising for speaking ill of the dead. It is a feeble attempt to rant about someone that you disagreed with and I am
sorry that you call yourselves Canadians.

I am not a conservative. I despise Harper. I despise Baird. Flahrety on the other hand was a solid cat. It is not his policy that forces the
government to borrow from commercial banks rather than the Bank of Canada. Paying $160,000,000 a day to bank profits that don't get spent in Canada,
is nothing Flahrety could do anything about. That is the PMO. He worked with the scraps he was given and stayed true to his political stripes as a
I do believe; however, with all my heart that he was killed. I don't know how and I can't say for sure why but I know it. His resignation was
suspicious to me. Income splitting isn't THAT big of a deal. Was he going to run for PM? They always deny it when asked so who knows. I do know that
Harper is the most power hungry PM this country has ever seen. He is the most arrogant man I have met. I wrote him a few letters that were never
answered l. Flahrety on the other hand DID write me back and attempted as best he could to settle my concerns.
I'll miss you, you grumpy little mofo. The fact that you are dead tells me you tried to do something right in a wrong world. Say hi to Layton for me.
I'm sure you two have a lot to talk about.
