Already at $23 Billion and counting, innovation is being touted from sea to sea in Canada as the panacea for whatever ails us. Trouble is, of the 147 taxpayer sponsored innovation activities it has been discovered that the Government actually has no idea if they are getting any value for the money spent.

A Tool Designed To Produce Misery

Government control through more taxation and regulation produces nothing but misery. The latest casualty is Venezuela. Despite once being a middle class country with the worlds largest oil reserves their decision to adopt a politial system that has failed to work anywhere has understandably triggered a decent into poverty, chaos and tragedy.

 Have you heard about the retired mechanic who rejected a government proposal to build a set of stairs in a park for $65,000, and instead raised $550 and built them himself. Well he is in as much trouble as the little girl trying to sell lemonade. Update: 

Toronto workers remove $550 park stairs built by senior after city’s $65K-$150K estimate

The usual anti-free trade special interest groups require a unique kind of ideological blindness to miss the benefits to Canada's most needy.

Discount Oil at Canada's Expense

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

on Tuesday, 18 July 2017 08:39

A big portion of the Canadian Electorate has bought onto the idea that Canadian Oil should be sold at a massive discount to American produced oil. President Obama's killing of the keystone pipeline then he lifting the export ban on US Oil prevented Canadian producers from accessing World Markets and World Prices while getting those prices for record US pipeline Production. Just one of the costs for Canada went up $8 a barrel to ship by rail, in the end costing Canadian Governments important revenue.

Questionable Spending With Little Oversight

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

on Monday, 17 July 2017 09:26

If it wasn't such a daugnting task, the average band member would easily know how much band counciil members are spendng band money. Not so easy. At the forefront you have the Trudeau Liberals removing accounability, forcing members like lastest member of the Cree band being forced to go to court to get the expendictures of her band council and chief. Not a very promisiing project when an investigation like this can takes months, if not years. This on top of 31 seperate reports from Auditor General Sheila Fraser begging for just such accounability. Since this system doesnt benefit band members, who does this system benefit?
