Continuing with a yearly tradition, the federal finance minister bought some new shoes for the budget which will be tabled in Ottawa next week. He also gave Canadians a peek into what they can expect.

Jim Flaherty says there will be initiatives for economic growth and job creation. He underlined the primary focus of the budget will be to "stay the course."  He says that will keep Canada the "envy of the world."

There won't be a surplus this year, but the Conservatives plan on posting one in 2015, just in time for the federal election.

As for the type of shoes Flaherty picked, he was handed a pair of black laced, steel toed shoes.  As he tried them on he showed off his blue stripped socks.
