I'm testing Spin Reduxit in SoundCloud. I'm curious if people have any thoughts.

I listened, it seems fine, but I couldn't find any volume controls for it? Is it just me?

This chart is helpful today.
Unemployment Rate Chart - CBC New Brunswick

This is a useful chart, but I wonder if it would be more informative if the net job creation over time was also displayed. Statscan shows employment numbers with each monthly report, so it would be a straightforward job to show net job changes month by month. It is job creation (or lack thereof) that tells the real story. Unemployment rate data are affected by labour mobility, especially by NBers heading west.

Dan and Jacques discuss Jim Parrott's ouster from the PC caucus, the bilingualism vs. duality debate, the secret language act committee hearings. Plus: book contests!

This is one of my all-time favourite charts. Yes, I'm that much of a geek.

I believe that the Lord surplus was largely the result of a large infusion of new federal transfer dollars plus expenditure delays. So the record is actually worse than one thinks.

Dan and Jacques discuss the new CRA poll and its implications for the Liberal leadership race, as well as the high unemployment rate and the recent property tax-local government reform.

I get a kick out of people referring to the voting system as weighted OMOV, it's just a weighted system, full stop.

The Friendly Fire Edition is now in iTunes, on this link or on our Google+ page. How cool is that.
 
For some reason, the link to the podcast didn't attach to the last update. Remember, you can also download the podcast in iTunes.
