Easier said than done

The International Monetary Fund doesn't need to get elected and it sure shows by their fiscal statements.

"The new Canadian government has some fiscal room to maneuver in achieving its objective of lowering the tax burden and slowing spending growth, while maintaining fiscal surpluses and keeping government debt on a firm downward path."

Technically this statement is true, however, I am not sure that Canadians are buying it. The IMF doesn't face voters and as a result likely miss this:
The Conservative's real test will come sometime next month when they deliver their first budget and the judge will be Joe Voter not some suit working for the IMF.
