Look Who Was Right

Last week I complained about Martin's pathetic federalist attitude. I pointed out that the provinces were going to push him around, specifically citing the Offshore deal, Saskatchewan demanding similar treatment and rumblings from Ontario. Well now those rumblings have gotten louder, and Dalton McGuinty is starting to threaten the Prime Minister.

"If we don't get the money from Ottawa, there will be a significant political price for Liberal MPs. We have stretched the foundations and principles of equalization to the limit."
Ontario Finance Minister Brian Sorbara could not be more clear, the simple fact of the matter is that the Provinces have seen that the Prime Minister is a weakling, and they're going to take advantage of him.

Where we go from here is anyone guess, but damn near anything is starting to look better than the Paul Martin fiasco.
