I spent today in the “Budget lock-up” in the Premier’s Office in Vancouver, BC. The day was all about reading spreadsheets and trying to find where the juicy bits are hidden in the budget. I had the pleasure of sitting with Will McMartin of The Tyee as well as Bill Tieleman, writer for 24 Hours and blogger at Bill Tieleman at something or another. A good time was had as (well, them much more than me) found the lies and deceptive wording in the budget documents.
My write up about the 2010 budget will appear on the Vancouver Observer site once the editor has ironed out all the little turds I left in my writing. My caveat is that I had to file before proof-reading because Annalie was calling out to me and I already had Story on my knee. If you have any interest in BC’s budget, I provide an interesting look at the document on the Van Observer.
Now, back to being a Papa blogger!!
