Growing Forward II

Mar 26, 2013 | 06:36 1 $406 million!
Borrowed money!
For research, marketing, "investment in agr-business"!
Now I might not be the sharpest knife in the drawer.....but aren't all of those things supposed to be the responsibility of private business?
Should the Canadian taxpayer be picking up the costs of private businesses? Reply With Quote

compete in the global marketplace"
Sounds good until you look at the history and some
figures. Canada's moves into global marketing have
led to reduced, not increased, net farm incomes for
Canadian producers. What's the definition of insanity
again?
I see another aim of GF2 is to develop smart phone
apps for pest surveillance. Yup, that sounds like a
good use of borrowed money that the taxpayer will
have to pay back some day. Reply With Quote

Maybe Ritzy baby can foot the bill for a summer's shooting blitz. If he can finance development of non-exploding sausage then perhaps he might spring for varmint control (the exploding kind). Reply With Quote

Personally if they have to piss away some money....maybe they could make the first installment on their BSE lawsuit? Or even give the seniors in long term care a bath or two? Reply With Quote

hamburger grinder Alberta taxpayers bought? Reply With Quote

Mar 27, 2013 | 09:29 7 Using tax money to generate economic activity is one of the advantages of a capitalistic society.

The challenge for bureaucrats and groups like ABP/CCA/Canada Beef is in picking the winners.

Thus the continued effort to choice a positive approach. Even when we feel that things are unfair. Reply With Quote
