Privatize the CBC - seriously, why should my family's tax dollars go toward a station we barely watch?

Scrap the gun registry - what a fucking waste of 2 billion dollars.

Quit making everything have to be in both French and English!! - It should only be in areas where it is of equal (or close to) bilingualism.

Abolish the Senate - they haven't rejected a bill in over 50 years. Strictly ceremonial and wasteful. Only Senator I respect is Anne Cools.

Abolish the Governor General and all Lieutenant Governors. Again, wasteful and strictly ceremonial.

Stop giving tax credits to every shitty TV show that comes along. I think all Canadian shows are receiving tax credits.

Crack down on people using tax dollars for their own personal vacation, eg) Sheila Copps and Adrienne Clarkson.

Allow for private delivery of health care, but only if it's made publicly available. This will make it more efficient and therefore less expensive to the taxpayers.

Quit making new seats in the House of Commons! These MPs are already making $110,000 a year and there's 308 (!) of them. We don't need anymore.

Quit giving tax dollars to political parties so that they can sway you with their propaganda. Make them raise their own money. (The US should adopt this too.)

Legalize marijuana and sell it through the government. And no, I'm not some tree hugging leftist hippie. This could save money through all the people we wouldn't have to jail and put through the courts, and then it would generate more revenue and therefore make less taxes to be paid.

Speaking of jail, cut back on all the programs and benefits they get in there. Those wastes of society should quit getting free education and decent living condition. They did the crime, PUNISH THEM.

I'll think of more.

Most hip-hop is now keyboard driven, because the majority of hip-hop workstations have loops and patches that enable somebody with marginal skills to put tracks together,...

Unfortunately, most hip-hop artists gravitated towards the path of least resistance by relying on these pre-set patches. As a result, electric guitar and real musicians became devalued, and a lot of hip-hop now sounds the same.

Dont trip, Goodale says Tax cuts are a comin soon.
"One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know," Alice answered. "Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

Yeah I'm glad they're gonna give out some tax cuts, but I'd like to see Canada have a low tax rate.

If you wouldn't mind Tech, could you elaborate on your disagreements? I'd love to see your different viewpoints.

I wish I was Canadian and had a clue about any of this, I'd discuss it with you.  Tax Cuts sound good to me, though!

I agree with pretty much all of those suggestions.

Also:
Treat Natives like any other Canadian, everyone should be equal.
Scrap the C.P.P.
Fund the military properly or scrap the whole thing.  A half-ass military is pretty much useless.

CalebOhio: I think i can speak for many others when i say my favorite rap artists are white but i still want black artists to be dope. they are chosing not to be. that wouldn't be a likely believe held in a white supremacist group. I want Nas to deliver evertime but he doesn't every time Sage does. so Sage gets my $15 regardless or his status. fuck your status perception and labels you use.

        I disagree.  I don't have a problem with my tax dollars funding the CBC.  I do have a problem with    the crap they have on the CBC tho.  The Government also funds recording artists, I think it's a good thing.  It's a lot harder for Canadian artists to get funding because there aren't as many record labels here as in the USA.  The CBC just needs a facelift. 


Scrap the gun registry - what a fucking waste of 2 billion dollars.

   Agree

Quit making everything have to be in both French and English!! - It should only be in areas where it is of equal (or close to) bilingualism.

      Not quite sure what you mean here.  Only things that are in both French and English are products, and my tax dollars don't pay for private companies.


Abolish the Senate - they haven't rejected a bill in over 50 years. Strictly ceremonial and wasteful. Only Senator I respect is Anne Cools.

        Agree

Abolish the Governor General and all Lieutenant Governors. Again, wasteful and strictly ceremonial.


        Agree

Stop giving tax credits to every shitty TV show that comes along. I think all Canadian shows are receiving tax credits.

         Sort of Agree

Crack down on people using tax dollars for their own personal vacation, eg) Sheila Copps and Adrienne Clarkson.


         Agree, but that will never happen

Allow for private delivery of health care, but only if it's made publicly available. This will make it more efficient and therefore less expensive to the taxpayers.

         Agree, I never really saw the whole big deal about this anyway.

Quit making new seats in the House of Commons! These MPs are already making $110,000 a year and there's 308 (!) of them. We don't need anymore.

        I think they just need to rethink the setup.  Why the hell does PEI have 4 mp's for 250 000 people?  Whereas my riding has 115 000 people with only 1 mp.

Quit giving tax dollars to political parties so that they can sway you with their propaganda. Make them raise their own money. (The US should adopt this too.)

Agree

Legalize marijuana and sell it through the government. And no, I'm not some tree hugging leftist hippie. This could save money through all the people we wouldn't have to jail and put through the courts, and then it would generate more revenue and therefore make less taxes to be paid.

Agree, Marijuana is 6 billioin dollar a year industry in BC alone.

Speaking of jail, cut back on all the programs and benefits they get in there. Those wastes of society should quit getting free education and decent living condition. They did the crime, PUNISH THEM.

Agree

I agree with all of those. Especially about the military, we might as well scrap it. That way no one can ask us to go to war.

I disagree with privatization because straight up I come from the bottom. Public housing and all that, so I could care less if all these middle class mofos are gettin taxed, as long as I still have the benefits i can get

Who cares, Ill be out of the country by then. Going to a land where we say fuck a tax and $300,000 can build you a fortress.

to watch tv legally in your own home in britain you need to have a tv liscense which is about £120 a year this money is used to fund the bbc.

iraq would just get annexed by iran


That would be a great solution.  If Iran and the majority of Iraqi's are pleased with it, then why shouldn't they do it?

That would be on top of the cable biils I assume.

That's bullshit, a television tax?  Gimme a break.  You shouldn't have to pay sales tax when purchasing televisions then.
I bet Canada hasn't thought of that cause I'm sure they would have implemented it.

I never saw that French/English stuff back in BC either....there were alot of Asian/english signs tho.....but when i moved to ottawa for school, shit its everywhere.....all signs on everythin have to be in both languages.  Then i went to quebec and everythin is in french.....theres no english anywhere to be seen.  that doesnt make any sense, we're promoting the biligualism all over the rest of the country? but Quebec is too good for that?

I think the money the govt gives to Canadian musicians and shows etc is good....promotes a canadian culture...prevents us from being too assimilated to the U.S.  (well...in theory anyways,  90% of what i'd watch on tv is american.....basically just Hockey Night in Canada (man i miss hockey) )

and Yea, i think Legalization is a good idea also....it would certainly help the Bc Economy, and Law enforcement could focus on other stuff instead.  I dont know the details, but Amsterdam doesnt seem to have a problem with it.
been rockin' longer than niggas twice my age
back in the days before Bob Marley was rockin' a fade
before Honest Abe signed the paper that freed slaves
before Neanderthals was drawing on walls in caves
I existed, in the garden of Eden gettin' lifted
stickin' dick to Eve before she was Adam's mistress
before Christ created Christmas, I been in lyrical fitness

thats for your basic 5 channels, if you want more u gotta pay for cable or digital
