I do have a problem with legislators rubber stamping that legislation. They need to do some fact checking and a little independent set of eyeball sanity checks before they propose it in the house.

Unless they are rubber stamping something a scientist said right?


Do you have examples where they have done this?


Didn't think so.

That's an excellent question. My guess is 'laziness' or 'cost cutting'.


Giving a bon bon to their constituency? One in fitting with their ideology.

I don't think so. The CFIB is a country wide organization. And from the Internal Government report, it's not really a huge benefit to anybody.

I think they just got lazy and decided to, once again, rubber stamp legislation without doing even a cursory examination that the methodology was correct. That's what was evident by the Ministers comments to the committee looking into this. He didn't have the foggiest clue what was actually in this legislation that he submitted and passed in the house.

The Canadian Federation of Independent Business estimated the credit would generate 25,000 person-years of employment over the next several years.

"When the CFIB said it's a big, big deal for small business, it's good news for people looking for jobs," he said.


Sounds like CFIB thought it was a big benefit and convinced Oliver of that. As for being CPC constituency, it's not all about regional ones. The labor movement, nationwide, for instance, would be seen as being and NDP constituency.
