Early budget details

It’s budget week for the federal government and as we’ve seen with previous budgets, some details are starting to leak out already. Here are some likely details we’re learning:

– House of Commons has offered a 6.9% budget cut in the SOR
– Katimavik’s funding will be ended.

What I’m hearing:
– 10% CBC budget cut
– 8% total spending cut for government spending
– shift in public sector pensions towards a 50-50 plan (won’t get there this year, of course)
– MP travel points and spousal travel points to be cut by a certain degree

Please add reported cuts and rumours of cuts in the comments.
