Last minute budget deals.

Just caught on the radio that an NDP finance critic is engaged in some last minute talks with the Conservative party. If the federal NDP's confidence is going to be bought, it better be with some very hefty concessions from the Conservatives. Watching this with extreme interest, as this will have a big impact on my next vote.

For political reasons, if aught else, the federal NDP needs to appear to be willing to hear them out. The concessions on offer have already been leaked (refunding of the Home Renovation Tax Credit program and some enhancement of the GIS). Barring a lot more (maybe an agreement to "[eradicate] capitalism and put into operation the full programme of socialized planning which will lead to the establishment in Canada of the Cooperative Commonwealth"), I wouldn't expect much last minute agreement.
