The QP Briefing team discusses the Progressive Conservative government's first budget since taking office nearly one year ago. We talk about the highs and lows of being in a budget lockup and some of the policy changes and political messages from the 343-page document and budget day. We have some snippets of politicians and economist Mike Moffatt sharing their views about the new licence plates, the budget's "obsession with alcohol" and how the government doesn't plan to balance the books within its four-year mandate. Plus, we say a temporary farewell to editor Jessica Smith Cross and show off the singing potential of two of our reporters.
