So, the backlash is growing. Over the next couple of weeks, we have at least six major protests planned. There's a boycott of McDonald's (the Finance minister owns most of them in the capital city region), which will have unintended but positive consequences . Open Line is off the wall. The House is falling apart - politicians shouting and screaming, fist-slamming, heckling. The Liberal party is starting to fracture with (in a small province, credible) threats from the public to personally ensure no one who votes in favour of the budget is ever re-elected.

Dwight is even having to push back against calls for a free vote:



Very curious to see what comes of it. Nothing, budgets amendments, or new government. If enough Liberals vote against the budget, it'll outshine the NDP's spectacular collapse a few years ago. Exciting times.
Liberals vote against their own budget? Surely can't happen unless they leave the party first.
