Have, or Have not?
I admit, I am an idiot when it comes to understanding the ins and outs of economics. After all, I am not an economist, nor have I had any formal schooling on the subject. This is probably true for a lot of Canadians. When we see in the headlines that Ontario is now a “have-not” province we are not sure what that really means. Yes, we know we don’t have a lot of money, we know that we don’t have a lot of new jobs, and we know that nothing is going to change any time soon. So, what is the difference? In the past 5 years or so nothing has changed for the average Canadian, except the price of gas. It has been very tough for a LONG time. And when we read about transfers that are going to Quebec in the billions, and then they are offering $7.00 a day daycare, it starts to make sense. We’ve been ripped off for years, and for billions of dollars. We have been carrying them and their lazy attitudes and pathetic work ethic for years, and now we are paying for it. We can’t carry everyone, some provinces have to pull their own weight, or at least try to. But if one of those provinces doesn’t care about the country as a whole then how is that going to affect the whole country? Like now, for instance. Ontario a have not province. Thanks Quebec, the buck stops here. I think it’s time for new laws and regulations about getting equalization payments, like a minimum employment rate or something. And day care prices that are standard with the rest of the country. AND, they get their health care on their OWN side of the river, where they pay their taxes. Oh, and that thing about getting new immigrants to sign. Good luck, and you wonder why no new businesses want to set up shop there.
