I can think of a few dozen things to do with $14 billion that would benefit the people of Canada a whole lot more than $35 will. When poverty and homeless have been eradicated, when everyone in Canada can afford dental care, when the government is doing everything possible to protect the environment, when infrastructure is solidly maintained, when every public school is flush with funding and teachers are well paid, maybe then we can talk about tax refunds.
To be fair, the Tories said they'd dole out only $725 million of the $13.8 billion projected surplus to "hard-working Canadians". But I'd like to think Canadian voters are too smart to sell their vote for the price of a tank of gas.
After the 2000 US
And we'll all get where we're going without Stephen Harper's $35.
