OTTAWA - Federal budgets usually deal in big numbers, throwing billions around, but this year's document gets down to some real microeconomics.
Many budget items allot hundreds of millions for this program or that. But some are a lot smaller.
For instance, the budget proudly announces a plan to spend $200,000 to study a plan to link Partridge Island, in Saint John harbour, to the New Brunswick mainland by a breakwater.
There's a $150,000 item to increase mentorship among women entrepreneurs.
