Tricks Tricks:
Driving up minimum wage drives up production costs, which will in turn drive up prices, and will have to turn around and drive up minimum wage again.


Excellant point, I hadnt thought of it from that perspective.

I think a problem is Quebecs undemocratic and unconstituitional language policy has denied a generation of Quebecers Engligh language skills which are essental in the North American ecconomy.


Well... English is the international language of buisness. I wonder if anyone ever told them :p

I think it is fairly obvious to any green minded Canadian that this is nothing more than a stall tactic which will allow oil companies to pollute freely, and profit greatly enough off of the raping of our environment that will allow for them to pay the trivial fines that may or may not come in 2025...

Unless you want prices to be driven up constantly to the point where our dollar is worth a yen Im no economist so I cant say for sure but it seems to me that the money saved by not having to spend so much on social programs while having a greater amount of people being productive would help the eco...

Campaign financing. In Canada, if there is a need, we just merge/split/form/dissolve political parties. Compared to the US, we do it relentlessly. When a political party gets too corrupt or out of touch, they can disappear forever. The last major US party to disappear was the Whigs, and that was 15...

We don't want a minimum wage people can live off. Would you rather have people robbing you on the street? or living on wellfare? I for one would rather have them contribute to society by working, paying their taxes and overall fostering economic growth and productivity. Take away the Unions right t...

Its what happens when Unions are allowed to run rampant and overall productivity is stifled... I dont think the problem is that they Qubecers are lazy, I know alot that are anything but... its that they are to Left of centre.

I wish I could find it.... a few years ago there was an outcry from the medical comunity that people were NOT EATING ENOUGH salt.

It seems like most things we enjoy in life are dangerous in large amounts but also in low amounts. Moderation in all things seems to be the answer.

Maybe if people (read annoying celebreties) wern't so focused on dept releif and killing poverty in other contries and focused on our own countries problems we could have a minimum wage that people could actually live on.

It seems like the American two party system is no longer working. American voters do not have a viable third option. The Two party system has never really worked, just like our multi-party system doesnt really work. Its a resault of the elections not being based off of actual vote counts (ie: Seats...

Every day I ask myself that question, more so when I hear that friends and co-workers of mine have been under fire recently. I know why we are there and know why we NEED to be there. I havent had to go yet, but my turn is comming and I will go and do my part aswell. It is my opinion that it is the R...

It won't work. You'll get two right of center parties, then the votes will split among the conservatives, leaving the left of center partiy in complete control for decades. Then moderate right and far right parties try to merge back together with the promise of the new party being more moderate and...

The Liberal plan was to give BILLIONS of dollars to Russia for imaginary credits... they never would have done anything. The Clean Air Act is by default much better than the previous but is still rather disappointing, I had hoped it would do more. Allthough I will have to see the full details and no...

This is one thing where I have to agree with Tony Blair on, wearing that veil in our open and democratic society is a mark of seperation and an open refusal to integrate into our society. The Religon argument is also false, it is islamic "Sharia" law and not actually part of the faith.
