    Justin Trudeau is Doing a Great Job

    Last election TrueDope said (strike that - promised) that he would balance it in the fourth year. How did that work out?

    Right now there is a small number of grocery stores allowed to sell beer so it is not a valid comparison to what it could be. What do you think the price would be if Costco were allowed to sell beer in Ontario?

    It certainly isn't the Ontario Government. They set minimum prices for liquor and beer. The breweries and distillers set the price for their product above that minimum. Ontario and Feds set the taxes that apply to the beer and liquor. If Ontario set the price there would be more buck a beer products. The Beer Store is owned by several major breweries, so basically they are setting prices. Although the Beer Store is privately owned (not government) they still run a virtual monopoly on beer sales. Regardless of volumes sold, the added competition should help to keep prices lower or not at least increase exponentially.

    You really are a financial idiot. A product could only go down or up by the same percentage as gas if the gas accounts for 100% of the product, which of course is rediculous. Gas will be a percentage of the transportation cost for that product. If you buy the product once, the extra cost will be negligable. If you have to buy it frequently the extra cost could be a burden. With products whose costs fluctuate it is always easy for someone to ask if you noticed any difference when an extra tax is added. The thing to remember with the carbon tax is that a litre of gas is always approximately 5 cents more per litre than it would be without the tax. If you want to know what it has cost, you need to keep track of the litres you have purchased since the tax was applied and multiply by 5 cents. Many people would be surprised at how much it adds up to. I know many people who will go out of their way to get to a gas station whose price is a penny or two less. We don't have the option, but I bet almost everybody would go to any gas station selling gas for 5 cents less.

    If going backwards under Scheer means we are going in the opposite of Trudeau's direction the result is we are moving forward again. Yea....

    Since Ontario has about 40% of Canada's population, along with the other three province's populations it is a fairly safe bet to say that most Canadians do care.

    And being moved to a lower position is Constructive Dismissal. I am sure you are well aware of what constructive dismissal is and what constitutes it...

    Being demoted is grounds for Constructive Dismissal.

    Why is our government spending like we are in a recession? If the economy is as good as the Liberals say why are we still in a deficit situation. In good times they should not be spending more than they are bringing in. Even more they should have a surplus and using it to pay down the debt. If they were doing this when the next downturn happens we would be in a better position to spend were it is needed. With no end in sight before we have a balanced budget, let alone reduce our debt, heaven help us when the down turn does occur.

    IGrip screw in track studs

    I'm out of sledding so I really don't care anymore but my reasoning for preferring standard studs is as follows: A standard stud goes into the track and not the paddle so when on a slippery surface both the studs and paddles are in contact with the ground. The screw in studs are in the paddles and are making contact with the ground with little or no paddle contact. May not make a big difference but to me you should get more grip with standard studs.

    You really need to think before you comment on financial matters. I know that is a lot to ask of you but you really need to try. A 5 billion deficit becomes 20 if the government commits to 5 billion new spending in each of the 4 years. 15 billion only becomes 60 if they commit to 15 billion in new spending in each year for 4 years; if they don't it is just 15 billion for that year. The cost to carry that debt in the following years will add to the deficit but it wont be 15 billion.

    Trudeau wants your private banking info!

    There you go with your crazy math again. Since there are approximately 30 million people in Canada and they are grabbing info on 500,000 per year that translates into 1 in 60 per year. Of course if you took into account kids and people without any transactions your chances of being selected are much greater.

    Ontario has gone to hell under NinnyBag

    Looks like Fail may have to reassess his position on the minimum wage. It's going to hit him big time for the purchase of his main recreational product. But as you say it's only a small increase. You may have to cut back on your consumption. http://torontosun.com/news/provincial/minimum-wage-hike-burns-ontario-marijuana-producers
