    Every couple of days I see folks on the Left say how upset they are that {Toronto Star, Globe and Mail, Global TV, CBC, etc} are so Conservative leaning.


    The first time I saw that, over a year ago, I almost choked. Lately it still gets a raised eyebrow.

    Wow, our debt is truly going to be astronomical in size by the time we kick the Lieberals out, if that ever even happens. I think I may have to seriously look into retiring to a warmer and less likely to become third world country since we seem to be on a rapid downward path to bankruptcy and third world status here in Canada.

    I think it is such a shame how although we have such a resource rich, capitalist endowed and opportunity filled country and yet we have abandoned inconceivably the path of growth and richness in Canada and instead have chosen to be a socialism loving but wretched, indebted and much poorer country for most here than it was for our fathers and grandfathers.

    It will be a lot more than a 107 billion before the Covid-19 crisis is over ; Trudeau has already stated that this is just the beginning of the govt. handouts . Well over a million people went onto EI last week after their jobs were shut down , and they expect another million people to go on this week . When this is over , the tax rates are going to be staggering ......and carry right into a depression .

    Yeah, and tell me why nobody wants to invest into Canada anymore?

    This massive and crippling debt on every man, woman and child will be pushing us into third world status soon.

    We were once a country of riches and opportunity but those days now are looking like they are well behind us and unlikely to return anytime soon.

    @M1917Enfield My brother and I were at a conference in Chicago about 3 years ago, and one of our american friends joked about not coming to visit us because they don't `do business in 3rd world countries` ...Canada is on the right track to making Venezuela look a-ok by comparison.

    I've been ignoring my tin-foil hat-wearing friends' theories and `predictions` for the last few weeks...and to my chagrin, I owe them some money and liquor at this point, because I was wrong.


    "Conservatives raised objections to what they dubbed a Liberal “power grab,” balking at provisions in a draft of the legislation that would have given the government sweeping authority to unilaterally spend, borrow and change taxation levels without Parliament’s approval for the next 21 months."

    Whatever you do, don't let your master's plans become *too* public... not that the general populace would do anything about it until it's far, far too late.

    " "Morneau said more than 2,000 Canada Revenue Agency workers are being redeployed to help get the employment benefits flowing. Workers who can’t work for almost any reason related to COVID-19, including staying home to look after others, the need to quarantine or self-isolate, or because their employers have closed or reduced business and can’t offer them as many or any shifts. Morneau said many times this bill is really just the first step to keep Canadians and the economy as healthy as possible in the midst of a crisis unlike any anyone has seen before. He said everyone wants to know the depth of the economic hurt, how long it will last and whether it will come in waves.
    We don’t know any of these things,” he said. “There is nothing regular about what we are facing.” "

    First of all, bull$#it. A pnuemonia-like flu has been around before, and with death-toll numbers ...what, still under 5% of infected? (I haven't looked at recent numbers)... I have my doubts that there's anything to seriously worry about. So we've been here before - diseases and a freaked out populace. The new thing is the media hype-monster and fear-mongering on a scale previously unattainable.

    As for more than 2000 being "redeployed", ...F#@% off ...contract-renewals and temp-returns ...it's that time of year. Most of them have been asked/almost forced to work from home. The office is rather empty, and my nightshift-workin self is now lookin at 5am for dayshifts. But hey, this seasonal-work will surely look good as a boast-able increase in jobs during such a hard economic time!
    Can't wait to read the memos that say to slush-away more money than all of us combined could make, let alone be taxed on.


    "The bill also gives the federal ministers of health and finance the power to approve spending “all money required to do anything” to deal with a public health emergency."

    If anyone is left, this means anyone's great-great grandchildren will be paying off liberal debts. Unless everything collapses as scheduled and the country as we know it replaced with anything else.
    (Waiting for Alberta to make that Wexit thing more than a fart in the wind)

    " Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Tuesday the government was trying to balance the need to act quickly to help Canadians with the need to remain accountable to Parliament.
    “It is an exceptional situation that requires extreme flexibility and rapidity of response by governments to be able to help Canadians and react to a situation that we’ve seen is moving quickly every single day,” he said. “So saying, we have a Parliament that works, we have an Opposition that is doing its job of making sure that we are taking the right steps the right way.”
    The bill only needed one party’s support to pass the Commons eventually but it needed the support of every MP present to be put through on the one-day schedule the Liberals wanted."

    ...the oppositions is doing its job..of looking like opposition but going along with you, browless wonder? He already flaunts 'accountability'...frankly, I'm curious how he'll make good on his threats to the nation of enforcing distancing, home-stay or other such things. Having been in the military, my first thought was `you and what army?` .... even if the police forces are militarized, there's not enough to enforce it.

    Gotta wonder if I'll see any of that 2K... other than as taxed deductions off an already dwindled paycheque.
    And of course it's taxable... because the government doesn't give gifts, and if people aren't working, they're not being taxed(I know...I know)..so the coffers will be empty soon.


    "after the bill passed, Scheer released a statement highlighting oversight measures included in the final draft, including shortening the period during which the federal cabinet has special spending powers to keep the government moving and requiring regular reports on spending to House of Commons committees.
    This is what an “effective Opposition” looks like, he said."

    Well, there's another reason he didn't whup Trudeau.... it's easier to see when he lies than the libs or ndp.
