Now its a tax on Netflix. Vancouver isn't happy with the increased property taxes from the boom and is now going to raise them 3.9% plus a 6% increase in Utility charges.... to raise more money to throw away. It's never enough. What's next, taxing the air you breathe (carbon tax anyone?).

The Elimination of Cash

You already pay nearly 50% in taxes, now the government wants to track every single expenditure you make with what is left. The whole "cashless" society is so cash starved government can solve their problems by taking some, or all of what you have left at the blink of an eye.

It's curious what creates tremendous waste in government spending. For example how is it that there can be no clean drinking water on some native reserves after spending 10 billion a year? Despite the urge to put all the examples of government waste down to inefficiency and sloth, Michael says there is quite a different reason for it.

Politicians and the media's love affair with all things Climate Change related is more than a little obvious. Photo ops, grand statements, first ministers meetings are the constant reminder of how much they care but what about other issues like homelessness, exploding deficits and government waste?

The idea that the rich needs to be taxed to cover all of government expenditures. Surprise, If the government taxed every cent of the top 1% they wouldn't even come close to covering  all the other promises government has made in this year, much less the deficits from years gone by.

Governments love to spend money so its no wonder Rachel Notedly is defending the pipeline given back of the envelope math determines that its worth more than 47 Billion in taxes for Government coffers. Other numbers are dramatic.
