Budget of the Canadian Government

There are some really good things in the budget:

  • getting rid of 19K employees,
  • improve schools and infrastructure on Indian reserves,
  • various tax changes,
  • innovation in science/technology by using grants and matching funds,
  • budgetary surplus within a few years, and
  • purchasing from small businesses.

Shocking items:

  • doing away with the one cent coin (What will welders use to space the steel?)
  • no mention of avoiding use of that other OS to save hundreds of $millions annually … 🙁

    Well, there’s nothing quite like getting rid of 19,000 useless government employees whose basic crime is that they are not blighting the lives of Native Americans in Manitoba by forcing a useless “skill” like Linux down their gullet, is there?

    I’m all for this. Money isn’t important.

    Let’s punish the guilty, shall we?
