Pip off for the polls!

Apparently, the provincial government is organizing some sort of province-wide celebration of not getting Equalization.

1. What are the odds CRA will be in the field when the party takes place? [Hint: They poll in November and release the results in the first week of December]

2. Surely the Premier, his finance minister and their political staff could better spend their time filling the people of the in on the actual state of provincial government finances what with the current international situation than planning a party.

Funny hat and noisemaker update:
"We do plan to mark this momentous occasion," said Elizabeth Matthews, spokesman for Premier Danny Williams. The plans are still in the preliminary stages, but Ms. Matthews says a major celebration will be held.
