    Imagine you were given the opportunity to completely redraw the borders and boundaries of North America however you choose.

  • The Unintended Equalization

    The Unintended Equalization

    22/04/2019 Duración: 06min

    The stated objective of Canada’s equalization program is to ensure provincial governments in less-prosperous regions of the country are able to deliver high-quality public services to residents. This is a worthwhile, even noble objective. That the program is motivated by good intentions, however, does not necessarily mean it is producing positive results. In fact, equalization is producing disastrous unintended consequences for all the provinces, including those receiving the biggest cheques.

    The holidays are a time when many of us count our blessings, and think of society’s least fortunate.

  • Marijuana Wont Pay the Bills

    Marijuana Won't Pay the Bills

    05/04/2019 Duración: 05min

    Legalize and tax marijuana and the budget will balance itself. Marijuana advocates from stoners to recreational users to the Prime Minister have tried to convince us of this for years. It makes some sense that a product so commonly used should be regulated, not criminalized, sending its newly-enabled taxation revenues to the public coffers. Unfortunately, recent federal announcements and the examples of two American states tell us a fiscal boon from legal pot is nothing more than reefer madness.

    How should municipal services be delivered to citizens?

In actuality many municipal services are delivered by both private companies and public employees. Sometimes public employees are best position to provide better services and some time private contractors have the edge. Municipalities should examine the cost of both options.
