Sample quote:

“You know, we all want to blame somebody for the circumstances that we’re in. The bottom line is, we have had the highest cost and the best public services in the country, and we haven’t built, basically, a revenue model that sustains them. And this has been clear in our province for a number of years. People have been saying this for many years, that we were in this circumstance and that we would eventually get caught. And now we have, because oil prices have collapsed and suddenly the province has a $7-billion hole in its budget. In terms of who is responsible we all need only look in the mirror. Basically all of us have had the best of everything and have not had to pay for what it costs.”
