Federal Provincial Finance Ministers Meeting Called 'Dog & Pony' Show

At least one Finance Minister, Andrew Thomson of Saskatchewan, has dismissed the meeting as a "dog and pony show" after indications Harper would backslide on an election promise to exclude provincial natural resources revenues from any formula on dividing up funds to the provinces.

The equalization program dividing up the cash is a C$12 billion plan designed to allow poorer provinces to offer social programs comparable to those of the richer provinces.

It's nice to see the minister use my favourite metaphor to describe Regina's Mayor and his show.
