I start with the position that there should be no taxation, then make limited concessions for things such as roads and courts, and also for a safety net.


From 1867 until 1914, Canada's chief concern was encouraging immigration and investment, and it achieved this very successfully by raising revenue only through taxes on import duties. After two successive World Wars, experiments with socialism in the West in the sixties, and finally America's abandonment of the gold standard in 1971, the social democrats stumbled upon the tactic of securing electoral votes through the promise of ever more handouts.

In 2020, almost fifty cents out of every dollar Canadians earned went to the federal government. To make matters worse, provincial governments, which when put together have an even bigger budget than the federal government, took whatever was left. Canada has leaped past being simply a socialist nation and is now a full blown welfare state.

It is not the responsibility of the federal or the provincial governments to micromanage all aspects of our health care, education, food, energy, and most alarmingly, our very children. We Canadians need to begin weening ourselves off of government and we need to take personal responsibility for the lives we lead.
