  • uwish: This waist of skin really doesn't like business. They tried this in Alberta and there were more small business closures in the past 4 years than in the past 40.
  • llama66: Me being the pedantic dick that I am, Government is about the people, not the business. This is why our form of government is called a Democracy.

    You forgot SNC Lavalin. :D
  • Thanos: High civic taxation hikes in both Calgary and Edmonton have been responsible far more for small business closures than the minimum wage hike could ever be. Can't speak for how Edmonton politicians do their thing but the Calgary city council is completely demented, a cluster of (mostly) far-left kooks who have become the literal definition of tax gougers and wildly irresponsible spenders. The minimum wage hike isn't even in the same conversation when it comes to the amount of damage that incessant business tax hikes have done in Alberta over the last few years.
  • uwish: the chamber of commerce disagrees with you. While yes the property tax burden has had much to do with pilling on the misery, that really was only in the last year or so. The min wage increase happened 4 years ago and has been drowning business since the NDP drove it up. The latest issue is really just the nail in the coffin to businesses that was just hanging on.
