Here’s Finance Minister Jim Flaherty outside the House today when asked to name a date for the 2013 budget:
When can we expect a date for the budget? Sorry (inaudible) the question but I’ll keep asking it.
Flaherty: I can’t hear you. Can you speak louder?
A date for the budget, sir.
Flaherty: I heard you. I heard you. Stay tuned. Very soon. Not the budget but the date. Very soon.
Flaherty: Maybe sooner.
