The far bigger problem is the sheer size of government, and the number of committed socialists that control it. BC has it especially bad, with a government that firmly believes in the Big Brother model, where everything is supplied by government union employees. To add insult to injury they actively try to shutter our resource industries that pay the bills. This is strange when you think about it because most of these big businesses are operated by union employees. The same group the dippers pretend to stand up for.I think Canada, with its mix of free market capitalism and social programs, is basically a good system. We have just let too much control fall into the hands of the corporate sector, something that started 1970ish with the adoption of neoliberal economic policies. The system is controlled by a very few a the top of the food chain who seek only to service themselves, screw the rest. We are no longer a society of people, we are now seen as consumers. Everything is about the bottom line. Wages have been stagnant for decades, not keeping pace with the cost of living, and the environment is going to shit.
