My large double, double

I like Tim Horton's coffee, usually I order a large double, double. In January 2006 during the last election, this cost $1.40. After Steven Harper moved into 24 Sussex Drive, the GST was lowered by 1%, making the cost $1.39. About a year later, the GST was lowered again, making the cost $1.38. Then the prices went up, and my large double double costs $1.45.

The loss of the GST revenue has put the federal budget perilously close to a deficit.

To the federal government: thanks for nothing.
