What do you think about Government not collecting any tax? Revenue would come from natural resources companies that would be turned into Crown Corporations (only Canada might pull this off as we have one of the World's most abundant resources). Business profits and would rise and US and other international companies would set up shop here. Roads, courts, ect would be paid for and we would avoid the Baby Boomer dilemma by increasing productivity and innovation VIA economic immigration. Here's an everyday example: GASOLINE TAX - 33% in combined taxes on average on the price of fuel in Canada, and Americans pay about 11%. With Tax (Last Month Average) $1.21 per liter (~40 cents to Gov't) No Tax 81¢ (~81 cents to Gov't) Can you accept the logic that resources can fund services? Again, this is just a proposal so please throw in your 2 cents (not taxed of course ).
