What are Conservative Governments Good For?

Pork Barelling. That's what. Stevie Harper is now running neck and neck with the Mulroney boys. 38 members in cabinet. And he had the nerve to say Martin's cabinet was too big at 33? What a joke. Let's see. 5 cabinet ministers times $70k a year more in pay plus limos, plus, plus, plus......
