Small Business Work Ethic

There is no evidence that the initiative and work ethic that small businesses throughout the land exhibit is appreciated by Government. For one, with the increased CPP contributions, the self employed and small businesses pay double what Government employees or employees of major corporations pay. Then there's property taxes in major cities!!!

So many politicians arguing for higher taxes,  more regulations, the opposition to Free Trade, the whole anti-resource push and the moves to cool the real estate markets are all job killers.

It's ironic, but Donald Trump will do more for Alberta Premier Rachel Notley's re-election than her fellow NDP Leaders Jagmeet Singh and John Horgan, BC's Premier.

Canada's "Trump Like" Stance

Canada's political leaders are determined to protect supply management, in a Donald Trump like protectionist action. Where Canada's 3 leaders devotion to supply management hurts the poor with a system that transfers 3.5 billion a year from Canadians pockets and directs it to a few Ontario and Quebec farmers (13,500 farmers overall). Heck, Canada's determination to keep supply management going could cost us our trade deal with the US! Now that would cost us jobs!

This is a Really Bad Idea

Purposely reducing the value  of the vast majority of people's most valuable asset while trying to slow the most dynamic industry in 7 out of 10 provinces all in the name of creating affordability will not have a happy ending. Yet all three levels of government are doing precisely that. News flash: historically rising asset prices have never been the problem - falling ones are.

Politicians who claim their concern for carbon emissions causing climate change must be confused when they line up to ban Uber. Of course its understandable when you realize they are merely protecting the status quo.

It's a joke to say, as the Prime Minister has, that someone earning $150,000, or even $200,000 running a small business with the inherent risks, is rich. Indeed, anyone making over $150,000 is already paying at least 50% of their income to the 3 levels of Government. Now the CRA is going to decide how much family members can make in your business.
