4 - Abolish our central bank. Allow regional currencies based on local resources as a standard, still also maintain a Canadian currency for trade between towns/cities/provinces/countries.
5 - Invest heavily in the Canadian military. Go nuclear and make security pacts with off continent countries.
6 - Allow massive immigration so Canada can have the manpower to utilize its resources for real production.
Although oil companies are gouging us, at-the-pump fuel prices are largely the result of taxes.........and canceling NAFTA will cost many jobs.
Lumber and oil are natural resources, the control of which belongs to the provinces, according to our constitution.
No problem with improved trade.....free trade is a wonderful thing, especially if it could be achieved on a global basis.........
Regional currencies? BAD idea.........speculation would run rampant
I see no need for our military to go nuclear.........I do agree with increasing its size and lethality......
We need time to assimilate the immigrants we have.....people from a culture of no liberty, single-party states, or theocracies need a generation or two to become responsible members of a free and democratic society........
