Nation, I am ashamed. I'm going to be a bad, bad pseudo-journalist.
Work is taking me out of the country until Monday afternoon, and I am (unbelievably) going to miss the unveiling of Premier Stelmach's first provincial budget on Thursday.
Fear not, though - I won't leave you in the lurch. For coverage of and reaction to the budget, I'd strongly urge you all to visit Ken Chapman's blog.
Analysis and reaction will likely also be found at daveberta.
Be good to yourselves, and I'll see you Monday. Don't burn down the province while I'm gone.
