    I wonder if the cost of the fancy cover(what did the last one cost, 100k?) will be included in the budget?

    Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty — and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies. - H.L. Mencken

    Morneau drops more hints about budget

    March 14 2019
    Toronto, Ontario

    Finance Minister Bill Morneau is suggesting that next week's federal budget will include measures to help Canadians cover their bills if they choose to head back to school to boost their skills or change careers.

    During a morning event in Toronto, Morneau told a group of children that the Liberal government is looking at ways to help people prepare for their next jobs.

    Among the ideas Morneau is putting out today are an avenue for people to have dedicated time off for skills training and ways to cover their expenses while they're out of the workforce.

    Top government officials have been working behind the scenes for years on ways to help Canadians prepare for shifts in the economy, marked by fewer permanent careers and more short-term jobs, a hallmark of the "gig" economy.

    The Liberals have been clear that Tuesday's federal budget — the last before the country is plunged into an election campaign — will focus on helping people improve their skills in the face of a shifting labour market.

    At the start of the event, Morneau put on the shoes he will wear for next week's budget day, which are the same ones he wore in 2016 with some repair work from an all-female-owned shop in Toronto's Kensington Market district.

    Morneau is wearing repaired shoes.


    New shoes on budget day is an [less honoured in the breach] unusual tradition among Canadian Ministers of Finance. The tradition holds that the Minister of Finance should purchase or wear new shoes when the budget is delivered.
    ...
    Joe Oliver, wore New Balance shoes with blue laces to underscore the fact that the Conservatives' 2015 budget was balanced.

    So let me get this straight - introduce a stress test to make it harder to buy a home and cool prices a bit, but then increase mortgage amortization which will exactly cancel those effects (while costing even more in interest)? Only an f'n Liberal...

    My friend got a zero down money back mortgage if I recall correctly, a couple years later, I needed at least 5% down.(I didn't have it at the time and waited a few years)
    That really wasn't a problem, the biggest issue I ran into was wanting to fix up a gutted house and the cmhc wouldn't insure it.
    Which means I had to go through the bank and needed 20% down, which was a curveball into my savings and had to borrow elsewhere.

    It's currently not a bad situation if you're buying a move in ready house.
    But I guess 2008 is quickly forgotten.
