SHOW YOUR WORK! Part 2: Canadian government, stop passing legislation without proof of necessity

As a follow-up to yesterday’s article, let’s shift focus to the debt-spending tactics of the federal government, whose nefarious end goals are the same as the Ontario provincial government, but are much more transparent.

SHOW YOUR WORK! Ontario government, stop passing legislation without proof of necessity

In academic level math courses, provided they are unencumbered by postmodern thought, you are generally given credit even when you don’t arrive at the right answer, but you showed your work to demonstrate a correct logical thought process for most of the way.

Thursday Thoughts: it’s a bubble bath (socially and economically)

If Trudeau’s “peoplekind” video was a Try not to cringe challenge, I lost almost right away

As soon as I heard the words “we say peoplekind, not necessarily mankind”, I shuddered, winced, reflexively hit Ctrl+F4 and buried my face into my palms. I then forced myself to watch the video in its entirety.

“Paid for by the Government of Ontario” Part 2: education, the ETFO, and the makings of a Brave New World

Paid for by the Government of Ontario is a multi-part series of articles detailing the rampant government intervention in the province of Ontario, Canada. The line is borrowed from the sign-off of government sponsored commercials that air on radio, television and other media.

It’s Groundhog Day and like the movie, Canada is about to relive another financial crisis

Until this modern take of Keynesian economics is no longer pushed as the standard of financial “wisdom”, debt-fueled economies will continue to relive these progressively worse economic cycles, with every bubble burst being much worse than the last.

“Paid for by the Government of Ontario” Part 1: reminding us daily who our owners are

By now if you have recently listened to the radio, or God forbid, watched television like CP24 (whether voluntarily or by force, seeing how it is plastered all over the GTA), you will have likely come across a series of advertisements with a sign-off that sears in to your memory:

Canadians are freaking out over a 0.25% rise in interest rates

Ontario already feeling the pinch with the minimum wage hike

Anecdotally, within just the first few days of this legislation in effect, everyone has seen the immediate inflation in consumer prices, and if not, the immediat… Read more
