“Look at th pe cfib report big city spenders, municipalities have been spending like drunken sailors for the past 15 years. Your property tax rate goes up 3% a year and then they also tell you your house is worth 3% more too. This does also not include fees. Municipal governments in Canada have to be reined in.”

NTodd on Aug 29, 2013 at 21:41:13

“In our city, the government is totally focused on attracting people to the city by building big fancy monuments to the egos of our city politicians, who think that the presence of such monuments is the reason people actually come to live here. Meanwhile, the new arrivals find roads and bridges crumbling, water lines breaking, snow left on the ground, and power outages due to the squandering of the city's resources on said monuments ("This'll really put us ON THE MAP. It'll make the city VIBRANT"). I'd rather pay more for maintaining reliable services than new city parks and galleries and such.”

“Inflation at 1.3% the average government workers raise this year 3%+ no wonder no one wants to work in the private sector anymore.”

“You must be talking about the increases brought about by Harper for his friends and appointees who are laughing all the way from the trough to the bank at our expense!”

cigi on Aug 25, 2013 at 20:55:57

“PROVE IT! That is NOT happening in North Carolina or Texas, where I have been living for the last 25 years. From 1980 until I retired in 2000, I NEVER got more than a 3% raise ever. My husband who was in middle management and retired for the "second time" worked for a Fortune 10 and some of their work force had not seen a raise in 10 years, while that Corporation made BILLIONS and the upper management were overpaid by BILLIONS. By the way we both worked for a regulated utility for a collective 55 years before he went to a straight private enterprise and there was NO difference in getting raises save for the regulated utility had a union and when the Union got a 3% raise, management got a 4%-6%. Companies without Unions, well some of their employees won't see a raise for years. My husband went without a raise with the private sector for 5 years and received excellent reviews EVERY year. NO one in business wants to pay a fair wage and now that Corporations OWN and RUN our Government, the same is happening there. My son, who has done two tours in Iraq, has his pay frozen, so much for your knowledge of anything relevant.”

“That is a lie.
Over the past few years government increases have been noticeably lower than those in private industry.”

“Personal consumption has just biased his own arguments.”

heterodoxlibertarian on Aug 22, 2013 at 12:30:49

“We all have a bias. My Uncle smokes. He opposes smoking bans in bars. Does that mean he can't have a valid opinion? The idea here being there a whole bunch of other things that are worse for your health than pot and people are free to consume them.”

Steel Wind on Aug 22, 2013 at 11:48:33

“Biased? If you mean by "biased", provided him with the personal experience to judge the "reefer madness" arguments warning against its use to be complete and utter hogwash, then you are right.

How can you possibly make an informed decision otherwise? There is NO scientific debate as to the destructive capability, physical addictiveness and deleterious health effects of cocaine, crystal meth, and opiates. You don't have to try heroin to know you should not. If heroin were legal (again) would you go down to your local drugstore and get it? I don't think so. Not even if it were FREE.

But pot? Different story. The scientific literature confirming it is not harmful, not addictive and not deleterious to longterm health is replete throughout thousands of studies. The basis upon which is was declared illegal in Canada was, put bluntly, a fraudulent lie perpetrated upon Parliament.

Those are EXACTLY the circumstances under which personal experience with cannabis is not "bias", it is knowing all of the facts and being in a position to fairly judge them.

That's not "bias"; that's being informed.”

TonyOnly on Aug 22, 2013 at 11:46:06

“Ralph Klein wasn't exactly known as a teetotaler. Maybe his consumption has biased your arguments.”

Cynical Canadian on Aug 22, 2013 at 11:43:33

“Nenshi did all the same things that Ford(s) did and had far greater - as in, wide-spread - damage to deal with, so, probably no, Calgary would not trade "there" (sic) mayor for Ford.
