So an oil spill is inevitable if this plan goes ahead.

Oil tankers operating out of Kitimat are a recipe for disaster.

With that kind of logic you must lead a simple life without flying or driving or walking across the street or a thousand other things where an accident is "inevitable". You don't take risks and do any of that type of thing, do you?

Sure he's a man of faith, he believes in un-seen hands, doing all manner of things. Accidents won't happen, when men of will, put their faith to it.

Even if some oil escapes at some point, it won't transform the entire area into a permanent Sad Black Gooey North. If all endeavours required 100% guarantees that no duck will ever die, nothing would ever happen.

I'm happy to take calculated risks with my own life/property, and I recognize that you can't eliminate all possible risks to the environment when considering an industrial development. However, there are reasonable risks, and stupid risks. Shipping crude oil out of a port surrounded by pristine wilderness in a part of the world that experiences some of the most extreme weather, tidal currents, and other hazards to shipping of anywhere in the world goes beyond stupid into the realm of The only people who would even consider this are the people who will walk away from the mess with truckloads of money.

Charge GST on food, economists say - Business - CBC News

I agree with this idea. Tax all consumer items and cut income taxes.

I think that was the criticism initially of the vote buying gst cut. Income taxes on Canadians (not corps either...) should have been cut, but instead the cons rolled back some cuts to implement their gst cut.

That was the first clue to me that they were not thinking this through.

Those two economists are idiots. Taxing food in turn taxes the poorest of the poor at the very heart of their limited spending power. Shame on them for even thinking such a thing.
