Instead of making 99 per cent of Canadian citizens happy, the government is choosing to cater to the one per cent.
Wages of well-paid Canadians went up last year about 24 per cent. Lower paying jobs saw an increase of about 1.4 per cent.
So, to make this one per cent happier, the government decided to make more well-paying jobs by spending $33 billion on construction of non-combat ships.
What benefit is there for the majority of Canadians from all of that money spent? Does anyone remember the B.C. fast ferry dilemma, or the billions of dollars spent on useless submarines, that are still sitting in the shipyards after so many years?
But I guess if the money is cut out from medical, police forces, and other necessities, the government can collect enough to support the well-paid jobs.
