Firds of a bleather

Provincial finance minister Tom Marshall, speaking in Corner Brook in mid-February:

“Now we have to benefit from new industry, benefit from the knowledge economy, the innovation economy.”

And then a couple of days before the federal budget, you’ll never guess what federal Tories are saying, well according to Globe and Mail sources:

The Harper government's Throne Speech and budget this week will try to shift the spotlight away from the billions of dollars in short-term stimulus and onto measures designed to generate higher-paying, longer-term jobs.
