The current top story on CBC Nova Scotia:
Nova Scotia's minority Tory government falls
Nova Scotia's opposition MLAs voted down a finance bill Monday, prompting the fall of the minority Progressive Conservative government and setting the stage for an election...
The budget dies with the fall of the government.
basically means the last three months of my life were all for naught, since that time was spent working on the budget for my department. Unless the Tory government is re-elected and sticks with the existing budget. That would, of course, be the easiest outcome for me professionally...although am personally hoping for a change in government. The timing is such that we'll most likely be knee deep in budget preparations again during June and July. However, my position is not normally involved in budgets, so I really don't know what I'll be doing. Last time I was supposed to return to my regular accounting duties, our Deputy Minister wanted me to stay on budgets (and I must say it is great for the ego to have your work appreciated at that level!) But who knows if that will be the case again.
All I can say with certainty is that I am not changing my July vacation plans as a result of all this! Come hell or high water, I am going to spend two wonderful weeks in Newfoundland with my best friend and our families. And that, says me, is that!
