He started with a pretty traditional Capital spend, $7 billion this year, and now he's "adding" another three billion.
But is he really?
This is smart. But it's neither game changing, or new.
It was announced 51 days ago.
So did Jason Kenney announce anything "new" yesterday? The answer is no.
We'll see if actual spent reaches the year high of over $9 billion that occurred under our Government, but let's be clear: nothing is new here, & the overall number is not a game changer. /end #ableg
