A Very Uncomfortable Question

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

Despite growth chugging along at over 3% Prime Minister Trudeau is happy to pass along another $18.5 billion in debt for our children to pay. Which begs the question, if we're not prepared to pay our own way in good times – when would we?

Say Goodbye To These Jobs

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

on Saturday, 21 October 2017 13:38

 

Governments and the education system continue to fail to react to the tech revolution.  Next up - self driving cars and trucks will threaten the jobs of millions of people in the transport and delivery business. The fall-out will change politics - and chances are it won't be for the better.

Trudeau Punctuates 25 Years Of Zero Progress

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

on Saturday, 14 October 2017 11:26

 

00:45 -07:02 - The Trudeau Liberals spent a shocking $212,234. on the cover of the 2017 budget. That's compared to $616. for the previous budget. It's the tip of the iceberg, for 25 years Auditor Generals have been chronicling lavish and wasteful government spending in excess of $158 billion plus. Gone, disappeared and no one has gone to jail. If we have an obligation to pay taxes, does government not have the obiligation to spend it well? Show some progress at least? http://ow.ly/Pbgm30fSmgF

Revenue Canada To Get Tougher & Stronger

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

on Saturday, 07 October 2017 11:41

 

00:35 - 05:14 - Mike's Editorial - "You're innocent until proven guilty' before the law EXCEPT when it comes to tax collection. There, Revenue Canada says its up to you to prove your innocence. Now the Federal Government is about to hand more power to the already mightly Revenue Canada to enhance their ability to declare more Canadian busiinesses "guilty".

Have We Seen The Peak in The Anti-Success Anti-Business Movement?

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

 01:10 -  04:02 - Michael's Editorial -  With the backlash against Trudeau's tax plan, Michael wonders if we've seen the peak in the anti-success, anti -business anti 1% rhetoric. Certainly as - economist Thomas Sowell observed - "We've arrived at a time where we demonize those who produce, subsidize those who refuse to produce and canonize those who complain,"

There's Only One Thing Wrong With Socialism

The fact that its been an abject economic and social failure everywhere its been tried. Just ask the people in Venezuela, Cuba or even France. But that doesn’t bother the likes of Jeremy Corbyn, Bernie Sanders or a growing number of millennials.

BC and Alberta Have Upped The Cost of Cutting Emissions

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

on Saturday, 16 September 2017 11:17

 

In 2008, when BC introduced the carbon tax it was revenue neutral. Any revenue collected would be returned in the form of lower corporate and indiviudal taxes so there was no net increase in the government's tax revenues.  That's now changed in BC and Alberta - like any other tax, the carbon tax will be a revenue generator, which is bad news for the economy.
