CTF Calls It A "Status Quo Budget"

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation is happy there are no tax increases in the provincial budget.

CHSJ News asked Atlantic Director Kevin Lacey if its looks like an election year budget.

He says normally in an election year there is huge growth in spending but he thinks the government was concerned with how that would look so the spending increases are modest.

Lacey says even with a decline the deficit is still a concern adding it's still huge and a burden that taxpayers will have to bear well into the future.
