I have been listening to David Miller cry poor for some time now but don't trust his excuses so I looked at the budget numbers publicly available for myself. What I notice is that when Miller took office the budget was balanced. Since then the budget has increased from 6.4 to 7.8 billion. That is aprox. double the rate of inflation. The last budget increase before he took office was 1.2 percent. IF the budget increases were held to the rate of inflation we would not have the shortfall we have now. He has also drained most of the reserves during the past 4 years and received a $500 million handout. I also don't buy the downloading as being the main reason since the mojority of the downloaded costs were all in effect before he took office (based on public information). My concern is where did all the extra money go that he has been spending. That's where I would start looking.
