When I read Brian Mulroney giving Harper advice to “do something big,” I laughed.

First I thought perhaps Mulroney meant taking in a $300,000 bribe, lying about it, and then successfully suing the Federal government for over $2 million due to allegations he was crooked?

Or, perhaps another constitutional conference?

Or, the hated GST? (On a personal note, I agreed with that tax.)

Then I hit on it. Mulroney must be talking about his legacy. The one that haunted us well after he was gone: Deficit and debt.

On this then, a note to Mr. Mulroney: Never mind. With a historic $56 billion structural deficit, and a growing debt, Harper has already done something big. I wouldn’t want him to try something larger.
