NS Opposition Leader Blames Liberals For Running Up Debt

Nova Scotia's Opposition Leader says the McNeil Government is solely to blame for ringing-up more provincial debt. Jamie Baillie says they're spending too much at a time when financial belts need tightening.

The Liberals came into office last fall with a $16-million surplus, left behind by the former NDP government.
The provincial deficit has now been hiked to more than $250-million. The budget debate continues in the provincial legislature.
