Economist Rips in to Martin
"Mr. Martin, a successful finance minister for almost a decade until 2002, cannot quite shake off the impression that Canada's top job is too big for him," says the Economist in its Feb. 17 edition.Obviously, the Prime Minister is taking exception to the article. But the Economist is right on target with their list of complaints, which places incredibly weak federalism at the top of their list of complaints. They even site the offshore energy deal with Newfoundland and Nova Scotia as a serious problem.
"His faltering leadership has earned him the sobriquet of 'Mr Dithers.' "
Martin must be happy, now his incompetence is getting international attention. Well done Paul...
