Mayors and federal politics 
(en francais)

For a group with permanent tickets on the 'Scary Conservatives' bandwagon, a few big city mayors are certainly singing a different tune now. All of a sudden the fiscal imbalance and Stephen Harper's pledge to deal with it have rocketed to the top of big city mayor's agendas.

Personally, I think Prime Minister Stephen Harper is going to win big with this one. Give the money to the provinces, where it belongs, and let them make the decisions. Premiers such as Gordon Campbell and Dalton McGuinty will then be left with the decisions on where and how to spend the money, and the explanations that go with those decisions.
`Opportunity' for cities, Miller says
Tories `will have to reach out' GTA mayors okay with minority

Mayor David Miller put the best face he could on Monday's election even though the results mean Canada's biggest city has no voice in the new Conservative government.

Miller did so by speaking the language of Conservative leader and soon-to-be prime minister Stephen Harper.
