The Canadian Political and Economic Scene

Over the past 20 years, I have been growing increasingly frustrated with politics and politicians in Canada. We seem to be living in what could be termed "a benevolent dictatorship". While I am not a Libertarian (either upper or lower case "l"), I believe that we are overly regulated and that there is far too much secrecy in our governments at all levels.

Our politicians may start out with great intentions when they are first elected, unfortunately, they are quickly assimilated into the "system" (think of the Borg - resistance is futile, you will be assimilated!). They soon forget that they are responsive and responsible to those who elected them and that they serve at our whim not the other way around.

I'm will be using this blog to vent my frustrations and to point the finger at specific Canadian politicians and particular incidences that the Canadian public needs to take into account the next time we step into the polling booth. I'll also be discussing pertinent economic issues that are critical to our collective futures.
