    Budget

    680 News (toronto radio station) just said that Bill Morneau's budget is almost complete, and it will focus on
    • climate
    • health
    • safety issues like gun control

    I've been saying for a while that they can't do buyback with just an OIC, they need an Act to deal with money.
    The budget is certainly an Act that deals with money.

    How fast do budgets usually pass to Royal Assent ?

    Well they can't smelt the guns cause that's bad for the environment. They can't bury them cause that's bad too. Guess we gotta keep em.

    It's possible that he's merely budgeting for the next bunch of "$327 million to combat guns and gangs in Canada over 5 years ($86 million over five years for the border, $214 million over 5 years for the provinces, $27 million unknown)" and
    it has nothing to do with Blair's handgun/assault-weapon stuff.

    Either way, even mentioning $65 million per year against a $330 billion dollar budget, is more of a political thing.




    Note that in Aug 2019 Toronto police received $4.5 million to fight gun crime. They spent it all on an 11 week program called "Project Community Space" (ended up being 15 weeks, but I think only the first 11 weeks were on budget), which led to greater monitoring of bail compliance, and saw 463 arrests and the seizure of 247 firearms, but did not result in a reduction in shootings per week. (here)

    Population of Toronto 2.93 million.
    Population of Canada 37.59 million.
    $4.5 million * 37.59 / 2.93 * 52 /11 = $272 million per year to do this constantly across Canada.
    $272 million per year is 17x greater than $16 million per year they're allocating to Ontario (16 = 214 * 14.57 population of Ontario / 37.59 pop of Canada / 5 years).
    The $4.5 million was $1.5 million from each of the {fed, prov, city}, so technically that 17x is really 3x larger or 51x if one were to deal only with the federal portion.

    The climate change hoax, a creation for new taxation and limit freedoms.

    Government is your servant not your master.
    Taxation is theft.
