IMF lauds Canada’s fiscal discipline – The Globe and Mail. Yes, moderate gray Canadianness is sort of healthy for economies. While the country is going to be buffeted by the coming world financial crisis (mostly because we export so many natural resources), we won’t have to tighten our belts to bodily damage. With all the nice things that this article says about Chrétien and Martin, the real story is that Preston Manning introduced the topic of fiscal discipline and the Liberals did an end run around his concerns.
