Think about this. Gen X didnt have to go to war, but it never got the financial foothold the two generations before did.
Gen X at 50 is still 10 years away from what the previous attained at 30.

BUnch of slackers. Instead of going off to where the good paying jobs are and making a stake they had to be baristas and find their inner self while waiting for the parental units to croak so they could inherit a $60 000 house that is now selling for $1.2mil.

Every penny they spend is accounted for.

You don't seem to know much about government.

Really? You actually believe this?

What about the missing billions in unaccounted for infrastructure money that the budget watchdog uncovered? Still haven't heard accounting of that from banana stuffer or Build-it-Barbie.

Maybe not much, but I do know right from wrong and what this government is doing is definitely wrong.

Indeed it is morally reprehensible to help Canadians during a pandemic.

The very idea.

Infrastructure spending? Like this?: http://nationalpost.com/opinion/aaro...t-of-red-flags

From the above link: Another problem is the nebulous definition of the term “infrastructure” itself. Ever since the Trudeau government began applying the label to all and sundry, including such new innovations as “social” and “green” infrastructure, it has been necessary to first establish when it’s proposing to build actual infrastructure, and when it’s simply proposing more program spending.

But looking at the Trudeau government’s recent announcement in particular, there are huge red flags. Retrofitting (i.e., renovating) buildings may lead to reductions in carbon emissions, but there’s no guaranteed long-term economic benefit. Clean power has already been subsidized to the hilt and, in some cases, inflicted immense economic damage. And blindly splurging on transit such as electric buses when the pandemic may have permanently altered traffic and commuting levels — and therefore the demand for transit in the first place — seems dubious. Anyway, more at the above Links....

Ross McKitrick: If carbon taxes work, why all the new regulations?

Quote:

Many economists were excited a few years ago when the federal Liberals committed to introducing a carbon tax. Whether they were specialists in environmental economics or not, they knew from their introductory textbooks that emission pricing is a good tool for controlling pollution. And here was a major political party citing economic theory to support its policy plans. How enlightened!

But the specialist literature carried a warning my colleagues largely ignored. As I tried to caution (more than once) emission pricing makes sense if it is used instead of, not on top of, regulation. Because the different policy instruments amplify each others’ costs, if emission regulations are not removed before adding the tax, the outcome can be worse than doing nothing at all.

Unfortunately, most Canadian economists were happy to do the light lifting of telling governments why they should introduce a new tax, but very few wanted to help with the heavy lifting of convincing the same governments they first needed to repeal renewable energy mandates, home retrofit subsidies, ethanol mandates, electric vehicle subsidies, appliance efficiency standards, new energy efficiency codes for buildings, new motor vehicle fuel regulations, coal phaseouts, and a host of other fashionable green policies, support for which is nowadays viewed as a litmus test for being a good citizen.......More

The man is so f*cking pathetically inept he thinks he's going to attract PhD level immigrants who work with innovative technologies to come rushing to Canada to enjoy the newly taxed stock options. And that's already on top of taxing capital gains. Not exactly sure what would make that so enticing for technological innovators to want to come to Canada.
But as usual, Trudeau can't manage anything without tripping over his own dick.


Trudeau: The PM who can't get out of his own way.

You actually expect a leftist to live up to the high standards they demand of everyone else?
