I’ve never lived in a have-not province before, it’s kind of exciting. I’m not sure how this works though. Will Jim Flaherty be sending me a cheque or something? Do I get a discount card? Such progress we’re making under the Harper government, so exciting!

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Ontario will qualify for equalization payments next year for the first time in the province's history, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty confirmed Monday.
Flaherty made the comment on his way into a half-day meeting with his provincial colleagues at the Toronto airport. "Ontario will be very happy with the figure that I will give them this morning, which will be their share of the equalization program next year," Flaherty said.
