It's a Liberal budget: Ontario premier Dalton McGuinty "heaps praise" on "Conservative" budget

From the Ottawa Citizen:

Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty heaped praise on Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the new federal budget yesterday, adding Ontario would follow the federal government into significant deficit.

Mr. McGuinty said he will match the roughly $5.4 billion in infrastructure spending committed federally over the next two years.

"We're going to have to find a way to come up with that money," he told reporters. "That is necessarily going to increase the size of our deficit, but frankly I don't think we have a choice given the state of our economy, the fragility of the state of confidence in the minds of Ontario consumers, (and) the number of folks who are losing their jobs."

When Dalton McGuinty is busy praising a budget, you can count on it being a) not conservative and b) a disaster. For good responses to the federal budget, check out this list of reactions.

UPDATE: And here's The Toronto Star reporting on the love-in:

Hailing Stephen Harper as the "Prime Minister who actually delivered" for Ontario, Premier Dalton McGuinty said the federal budget is just the tonic for the province's ailing economy.
