Finance Minister Jim Flaherty says he will hand down his spring budget on February 11th.

He's not promising the new spending plan will balance the books, however.

Flaherty says he'll have a balanced budget in 2015.

The balanced books come just in time for the next federal election.

Flaherty says he'll balance the budget without raising taxes or cutting transfer payments to the provinces for health and education.

But he's suggesting this month's budget will be a stay-the-course document, with little in the way of spending or tax goodies.
