Opposition MPs pan Harper government’s federal budget

Opposition parties are criticizing the Harper government’s latest budget, which contains few changes from the fiscal plan introduced before the federal election this spring...“I really feel like they’ve kind of ignored these very basic quality of life issues that more and more people are facing and struggling with.” The Vancouver East MP said health care and housing are among those key issues. “I’m hugely disappointed and actually hopping mad that they just don’t get it about housing,” said Davies. “It’s not like the money isn’t there, because they’re giving away billion in these corporate tax cuts,” she added. “It’s all about how the pie’s made up and how it’s divided.”
