Because the opposition and their supporters are going to feel helpless for 4 years, I agree with this article:
Well, at least nobody called for another Arab Spring. Parliament remained a bastion of decorum on Monday as Finance Minister Jim Flaherty presented the federal government’s rerun of its 2011 budget without interruption or surprises. Mercifully, ex-page Brigette DePape’s protest didn’t inspire copy-cat performances by any of her former colleagues in the House of Commons, or further absurd comparisons with Egypt or Syria. Heck, even Question Period was relatively tame compared to what Canadians endured before the writ dropped in March.
The non-thinking left will have to protest to show hard working Canadians how wrong we were to give the Conservatives a majority, and it started the day of the election and will not end for 4 years. As funding gets cut for all those Liberal/NDP special interest groups, expect the yelling to increase in volume, because only the left protests.
If the government is going to review all programs based on results, the political lefty groups are going to be hit hard, and as they will be out of jobs, they will have nothing better to do than protest. This should work as well as the postal strike is going, which is badly.
There is nothing in the budget that the Conservatives didn't campaign on, so why are the opposition so "shocked"? Are they really that stupid, or do they think Canadian voters are stupid? Given the Quebec results last election, it's hard to tell.
