Who in their right mind would elect a government that acts to limit one's choices?
Well, Stephen Harper is the head of such a government. For example, he believes in restricting what Canadians can do with their discretionary after tax earnings.
Income trusts were the first choice to be eliminated. He did this to support the sagging interest on the part of savvy investors in corporations like BCE who are very adept at squandering their earnings and loathe to pay dividends to their shareholders/owners.
Next on the list of choices to be eliminated will be home choices, specifically condos. Followed by vacation destinations. That's likely to mean a double whammy if you own a condo in Florida.
Harper is also contemplating a one child per family rule for anyone who votes Liberal or Green in the next election. These measures will be retroactive. Voters for the NDP or Bloc are exempted, as votes for the NDP or the Bloc are as good as a vote for the Conservatives.
