Keepitsimple Posted October 24, 2009 Report Share Posted October 24, 2009 A lot of smoke has been raised about more stimulus money - on average - going to Tory ridings. While the Conservatives have made inroads into urban ridings, they are the dominant party in Rural Canada. Here's an interesting article that puts things in perspective: This is not primarily about Conservatives versus Liberal. It's about urban versus rural. Rural and small-town ridings, for the first time that anyone can remember, have gotten a fair shake from government. And the Liberals' Toronto caucus, which is the heart and soul of the party now, is screaming bloody murder. Has it occurred to any of the folks complaining about disproportionate stimulus spending in Tory ridings that these ridings tend to be badly underserved in most areas of infrastructure? Not likely. They don't get out of the city enough to know. Link: http://www.torontosun.com/comment/columnis...510176-sun.html Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
